Intertronics has released a new publication entitled Top Tips for Getting the Best from Your UV Curing Process.
The guide aims to give a better understanding of the way that UV curing works and to discuss the process variables. It discusses some of the differences between conventional UV curing lamps and the latest lamps based on LED technology. A good grasp of the fundamentals will help engineers, technicians and operators to set up an established process which is effective, robust and repeatable.
The curing of materials like adhesives, coatings, encapsulants, potting compounds, temporary masking materials or gaskets with UV light offers many process advantages, and can deliver productivity enhancements to manufacturers, Intertronics reports. The ability of the technology to deliver full cure in seconds (rather than minutes or hours) is a prime example. The materials are predominantly single part (no mixing) and only cure on demand, so application or dispensing is straightforward and readily automated.
