DYMAX Cure-PointTM 9440-A/B cures to depth in seconds upon exposure to UV/visible light to provide protection to electronic components and circuitry. It is a UV/visible light-curable silicone potting and sealing material designed for applications where fast cure, enhanced thermal performance, and room-temperature shadowed-area cure are required. Cure-Point 9440-A/B has a >90 day room temperature mix life.

This product is designed to withstand long exposure to temperatures ranging from below -40°C to above 200°C while retaining fast-cure processing benefits associated with UV-curable materials. This makes it superior to RTV silicones and heat-cure silicones which require longer cure times or elevated temperatures to cure. Cure-Point 9440-A/B excels in applications where oil or chemical exposure are present. It also features a fast, tack-free cure with negligible shrinkage.

DYMAX UV/visible light-curable materials are solvent free and their ability to cure in seconds results in lower processing costs. When cured with DYMAX light-curing spot lamps, focused beam lamps, or flood lamps, they deliver optimum speed and performance for maximum efficiency. DYMAX lamps offer the optimum balance of UV and visible light for fast, deep cures. This product is in full compliance with RoHS Directives 2002/95/EC and 2003/11EC.

DYMAX Corp. is a leading technology-based company specializing in the formulation, manufacture and service of advanced assembly adhesives, coatings, epoxies, masking resins, and light-curing systems.
