Items 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.
QUESTION: We use UV-curable adhesives in a medical device as adhesives and coatings. However, we are concerned about residual, uncured materials in the adhesive that might be toxic or cause corrosion. How can we ensure that the adhesive is always fully cured?
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).
