    Technology

    Background: UV-curable coating materials with high biorenewable content performance comparable to petrochemical-based formulations and lower cost are highly desirable. Commercialized soybean oil (SBO) derivatives such as acrylated epoxidized soybean oil (ASBO) are important starting materials for the development of soy-based materials such as coatings adhesives plasticizers inks and lubricants. Combining monomers possessing higher acrylate functionality with ASBO is expected to produce UV-curable coatings with better crosslinking and thus greatly enhanced coating film properties.

  • Indian cities have experienced unforeseen population growth over the last two decades and this trend is expected to continue over the next two decades. With increasing population, the housing stock will grow manifold and affordable housing will be the biggest challenge to meet. One of the greatest fallouts of rapid urbanization is seen in dilapidated and congested dwellings for the economically weaker segment of the urban population. Both private developers and government schemes which cater to this segment of housing need to ensure digni ed and comfortable living for the urban poor.
