DETX is a Norrish Type II photoinitiator, which should be combined with a H-donor molecule in UV or LED curable systems.

− Screen Inks − Coating on plastics
− Lithographic Inks − Flexo Inks
− Electronics − Wood Coatings

DETX absorbs in the long wave UV region and is therefore suitable for pigmented formulations. It shows a better solubility than ITX.
