UV curing products are typically limited to applications in which light can reach 100% of the material. However UV epoxies can achieve some "shadow curing"
Although photoinitiators are highly specialized and useful chemicals to a polymer chemist, there are many examples of these chemicals in nature.
A conformal coating is a thin film used to enhance the performance of electronic assemblies. Multiple base chemistry, cure, and applications options exist.
Most UV curing polymers set through free radical polymerization. Several methods exist to reduce oxygen inhibition of these types of products.
Free radical polymerization is a chemical process in which polymers are formed through the successive binding of free radical components.
The unique chemistry of UV cure epoxy systems allows polymer formulators to create durable yet fast setting adhesive & sealant products.
To outline the technical capabilities of UV adhesives & sealants in industrial and specialty applications we've created the following infographic.
Outgassing (also known as offgassing) occurs when gas is released from adhesives, encapsulants, lubricants, sealants, and other materials.
