shows cure by changing color.
technology from DYMAX addresses the two most frequently asked questions about
light-curing products: How do I know I’ve dispensed enough adhesive? and How do
I know when it is cured?
DYMAX adhesives formulated with new See-Cure technology are bright blue in
color in the uncured condition. This makes them easy to see on the surface of
substrates, in deep wells, or when sandwiched between two layers of materials.
The blue-colored adhesives will not permanently stain the component surfaces
that they contact. Because the blue color is extremely visible, simple vision
systems can be incorporated into assembly processes prior to curing in order to
easily identify adhesive coverage and profile.
The adhesive’s blue color becomes the visible indicator that sufficient light
energy has been provided to the adhesive bond area to achieve full cure. As the
adhesive cures, the blue color within the adhesive fades and ultimately turns
clear upon full cure.
Representative adhesives formulated with See-Cure technology for use in
medical-device assembly were subjected to biocompatibility testing. It was
verified that the addition of the technology has no affect on the biocompatibility
rating of the original adhesive product or on the biocompatibility of the
