Dymax Corporation’s new white paper “Dispensing Light-Curable Materials: Process Controls & Troubleshooting” discusses substrate compatibility, temperature and viscosity, and how to set up a dispense system.
Dymax explains that light-curable adhesives rapidly bond glass, metal, and plastic by curing upon exposure to energy of the proper wavelength. It says many factors can affect the controlled dispensing and processing of these materials. Its new White Paper covers syringe dispensing challenges, air bubbles and cavitation in syringes, using cartridges and pressure pots, and preventive maintenance.
In manufacturing, process controls are used to ensure that products are made to the highest standard possible. Dymax explains that, when effective procedures are laid out for each step in the manufacturing process, it's much easier to reduce the risk of damage, failure, and loss. The White Paper can be downloaded from the Dymax website.
