Tronly: Photoinitiators and UV Curable Monomers & Oligomers

Tronly is a chemical manufacturing company, founded in 1997, that specializes in UV Curing chemistries.  The company boasts nearly twenty years of experience developing and creating products including photointiators, UV curable monomers and oligomers.

Tronly is based out of China, and since its beginning has grown significantly. The company now holds three subsidiary companies, multiple advanced research and development centers, two chemical production plants, and in 2015 had over $52 million in sales. Tronly partners with photoresist industry leaders such Eternal Chemical, and supplies products to companies all over the world. They take up over 90% of the market share for Cationic UV Curing in Europe where they sell to companies such as Akzo Nobel, Valspar, PPG and Sun Chemical. Tronly is just beginning to bring its strong portfolio to North American markets.

Tronly is an application-oriented company that is dedicated to creating innovative solutions within the UV industry. Their photointiators and UV curable monomers and oligomers are widely used in dry film for PCB, color filter for LCD, specialized chemicals for semiconductors, inks, coatings, and the 3D printing industry.
