Rapi-Cure DVB1D (butanediol divinyl ether) is a new addition to this company’s family of reactive vinyl ether monomers for radiation-curing systems. This monomer is unique due to its water solubility and difunctionality. The ether groups impart water solubility, while the vinyl groups undergo cationic polymerization and free-radical copolymerization.
