Formulate Nail Gel Coatings that Look Salon-Fresh Longer

Bomar™ Oligomers Overcome Nail-Coating Issues

Torrington, Connecticut – Dymax Oligomers Coatings, formerly known as Bomar Specialties, offers a line of Bomar™ oligomers for use in formulating LED-curable nail gel coatings.  The oligomers help to overcome common nail coating issues such as low gloss, color drift, regulatory compliance issues, premature chipping, and high heat generation during cure.  Coatings formulated with Bomar™ oligomers have a non-yellowing, high-gloss finish for vibrant coatings, and exhibit excellent durability for a longer lasting salon-fresh look.  They generate minimal heat during LED-cure, are easily removed with acetone, and are created with low MeHQ levels for insignificant skin irritation.  Oligomers for nail gel coatings are INCI registered and meet many global regulatory conditions.

LED-curable coatings provide significant advantages over broad-spectrum UV coatings including faster cure times and reduced energy and maintenance costs associated with LED-curing equipment.  Bomar™ oligomers are ideally suited for top coat, color coat, or base coat LED-curable nail gel polishes sold in professional salons or do-it-at-home kits.  They cover a diverse range of mechanical properties allowing complete formulation flexibility, enabling formulators to get the desired coating properties.

Dymax Corporation develops innovative oligomer, adhesive, coating, dispensing, and light-curing systems for applications in a wide range of markets.  The company’s products are perfectly matched to work seamlessly with each other, providing design engineers with tools to dramatically improve manufacturing efficiency and reduce costs.  Major markets include aerospace, appliance, automotive, cosmetics, electronics, industrial, medical device, metal finishing, and UV-curable inks coatings.
