for your energy curing systems
Energy Curing – a diverse range of applications
What is the best way to get ink to adhere to laminated paper? How do objects created with a 3D printer keep their shape, and what kind of adhesive is required for immediate curing? You can overcome these and countless other challenges using ultraviolet and electron beam curing techniques. This Product Guide contains details of our main commercially available raw materials – additives, oligomers, reactive diluents, photoinitiators and other speciality chemicals. These can be used for an extremely wide range of applications – in inks, coatings, adhesives, medical products and rapid prototyping.
Can’t find what you’re looking for?
Our Product Guide lists the key features of our main products. If you can’t find the specific feature you require, please get in touch with our experts. We will be happy to discuss your particular needs and find an effective solution. We run our own laboratories in Switzerland, China and the United States. This has enabled RAHN-Energy Curing to develop hundreds of starting formulations during the last thirty years and more. Each of them was inspired by a particular industry challenge.
RAHN: Swiss expertise
all over the world
Regulatory directives and requirements are constantly changing. This makes it increasingly costly and complicated to register new products (e.g. REACH). Our competence center helps you maintain an overview of regulations worldwide. Our specialists will be happy to provide you with one-to-one advice on health & safety issues and registering products internationally.
Your partner, not just any supplier
We have been researching, producing and supplying customized speciality chemicals for more than thirty years. Over time, we have nurtured long-standing partnerships with our customers. This kind of collaboration is the only way to find the optimum answer to the challenges that you face
A Swiss family-run company – in its third generation
RAHN is an independent Swiss family-run company. It is now in the hands of the third generation. Thanks to our financial independence, we are able to make swift business decisions and entertain long-term commitments.
Profound experience in the sector
Our crucial success factors are the specialist skills and expert knowledge of our staff. They are able to advance day by day in our open and transparent culture. We have an extremely loyal team of employees, so you will continue to deal with the people you know as time passes by.
Our customers create amazing results with our raw materials for digital inkjet printing – no matter whether gloss, matte, or even 3D effects. What’s more, they can be used to print on almost any material. Whether, paper, glass, wood, plastic or metal, we have the right products to meet all sorts of needs and technical requirements.
Eye-catching food packaging
Food packaging jostles for customers’ attention on supermarket shelves and in the aisles. Our specially developed products with their high molecular weight ensure that the inks contain no undesirable substances that might penetrate the packaging. This keeps the food safe and lets the advantages of radiation-curing ink systems shine out for all to see.
Shape-retaining workpieces created with 3D printing
Our customers not only use our products to create 3D effects, but also generate robust workpieces with their 3D printers. Our raw materials reduce shrinkage and ensure objects match our customers’ precise specifications.
