Articles Tagged with ''ultraviolet (UV) curing''
UV LED curing refers to a technique that uses “energy” output from the light emitting diodes (LEDs) in the ultraviolet (UV) spectrum to treat coatings, adhesives, inks and other UV-curable materials.
One never gets a full 100% cure of these thermoset systems at relatively low temperatures because molecular mobility goes down dramatically as the adhesive increases in viscosity during curing.
Ultraviolet (UV) coatings are cured by UV light. They contain almost no solvents that may evaporate during the curing process. Instead, the UV curing process is achieved through polymerization—a crosslinking reaction of the coating constituents.
The photo curing extent of styrenic block copolymer (SBC)-based adhesive formulations applied as a uniform layer on a Mylar film can be readily determined by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR).
Welcome to our annual Dispensing and Curing Equipment Directory! The handy chart-style directory, found on pp. 14-19, includes supplier companies* and contact information for dispensing equipment like dispensers, pumps, mixers, and dispense heads.
