UV curing systems are used to cure photo-reactive UV adhesives. These systems contain monomers and oligomers, and some type of photo-initiator which, when activated by UV light, become polymers. Different adhesives cure at different wavelengths. When the photo-initiator is exposed to a particular wavelength and intensity, the polymerization reaction occurs, resulting in a cure.
What Solutions Are Available?
PAS offers UV curing equipment that enables reliable adhesion, including:
- UV LED and UV Lamp
- Spot cure
- Flood cure
- UV bulb
- UV curing accessories
What Factors Should Be Taken Into Account When Choosing A Suitable UV Curing System?
For the optimal cure, these factors must be taken into consideration:
- The UV lamp needs to match:
- The spectrum output of the photo-initiator package in the adhesive (wavelength requirements)
- The intensity and dose requirements
- Light output profile: LED or Broad Spectrum
