EpoxySet will introduce ground-breaking chemistry that will revolutionize adhesive bonding. The FlashSet UV-5608DC is a one part epoxy that can be activated by 405nm light with an intensity of about 150mW/cm2 for 5-10 seconds. Parts are then mated together and aligned within 45-60 seconds of activation. The adhesive will yield green strength after 30 minutes for handling. Full cure will occur over the next 16 hours at room temperature. If desired, cure can also be accomplished with UV energy or higher intensity blue light for a full cure in under 10 seconds. UV-5608DC is one of a series that have variations with alternative dwell and cure times and/or viscosities.
As there is no mixing required, this technology reduces processing time and errors. FlashSet UV-5608DC will bond to metals, ceramic, glass, ABS, Polycarbonate, Ultem and other engineered plastics. This medium viscosity epoxy produces a high strength bond with low cure shrinkage and a glass transition temperature of over 80°C. It can withstand temperature cycling from of -40°C to 120°C. The cured product exhibits excellent thermal, water and chemical resistance.
EpoxySet has been providing high performance, advanced polymers to medical and electronic device manufacturers since 1997, providing consistent quality products with superior technical support to meet the most demanding applications. Vast experience in creating custom formulations allows unique solutions quickly.
