The Application of UV curing technique for poly (vinyl chloride) (PVC) floor tiles coating has improved the quality of PVC floor. Several formulations were made including acrylated oligomers based on a polyurethane were blended with reactive monomers, photoinitiators and other additives. The used oligomers are commercial aliphatic urethane acrylates. Thin films were prepared on PVC tiles by bar coating with different formulations using UV radiation. The coating resins were characterized by FTIR. The properties of UV-cured films such as gloss and adhesion were examined. The properties of UV-cured films dependent on the influence of composition and processing conditions was studied.
