Light curable adhesive has built-in cure indicator
21 April 2011
Intertronics has introduced an adhesive featuring a built-in cure indicator. The DYMAX 3225-T-SC is a versatile, plastic-bonding adhesive formulated with See-Cure technology designed for rapid bonding, laminating and sealing of most plastics such as PMMA (acrylic), PC, PVC, ABS, PA, PU, SA and TPU. It can also be used in many applications for bonding glass, aluminium, stainless steel and brass substrates in combination with plastic substrates.
3225-T-SC is coloured bright blue in the uncured state. This provides high visibility which enables automated vision systems to confirm adhesive placement prior to the cure – then during the curing process the blue colour of the adhesive transitions to clear and provides an obvious, visual confirmation that a full cure has been achieved. 3225-T-SC is designed to cure tack free and clear in appearance after exposure to broad-spectrum curing equipment in less than 4 seconds at 200 mW/cm2 at 385 nm and in less than 3 seconds with a suitable UVA system from the Intertronics range.
