UV LED FOR
INDUSTRIAL ADHESIVE APPLICATIONS
UV curing of adhesives is common within a variety of Industrial sectors, including Tapes, Structural Bonding, Insulation and Sealing, already providing an efficient and accurate way of bonding..
UV LED is set to evolve the technology further not only improving its green credentials, reducing power consumption by a significant portion, but also reducing the use of consumable spare parts such as UV lamps, which contain hazardous materials such as mercury.
This diverse market sector, ranging from the bonding of glass and plastic materials to encapsulation of printed circuit boards utilizes the fast curing properties of a UV curable material to improve the speed and accuracy of the production line, usually the adhesives and coatings in this area react to longer wavelength (UVA) UV light and this is exactly the wavelengths emitted by UV LED’s which are typically in the 365nm to 405nm (UVA) part of the spectrum. Furthermore the narrow bandwidth of UVA light emitted from the UV LED system ensures that the products are not damaged by exposure to harmful UVC bandwidths.
As this market continues to evolve new and unique applications are appearing all the time as Chemists and Producers start to understand and apply the benefits of UV LED curing.
25 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
We try to design products that whilst aimed at a particular market can be utilised in other areas and for different applications.
The adhesives industry is divided into several sub-sectors, including construction adhesives, industrial adhesives, automotive adhesives, and aerospace adhesives. Each sub-sector has its own unique challenges and requirements, and adhesives must be formulated to meet the specific needs of each application.
The adhesives industry is a vital part of the global economy, and its products are used in virtually every sector, from construction and manufacturing to transportation and infrastructure. With the growing emphasis on sustainability, the adhesives industry is evolving to meet the demands of a changing world, and is committed to providing solutions that are not only high-performing but also environmentally responsible.
