UV-CURABLE RESINS

Photonics Spectra
Nov 2006
A four-page white paper titled “Solving Ultraviolet Curable Potting & Encapsulating Problems with Shadow Cure Technology” has been published by Epoxies Etc. Written for a nontechnical audience, it discusses the purpose of potting, problems with two-component potting methods, the disadvantages of first-generation UV-curable methods and the new series of UV-curable resins, which overcome shadow areas and deep section curing problems. The down-loadable document notes that the new resins will cure in the absence of light after initial UV exposure.



GLOSSARY
curing
The use of chemicals or radiation to induce a desired change in a substance; e.g., some optical adhesives are set by exposure to ultraviolet light and are said to be UV-curing.
light
Electromagnetic radiation detectable by the eye, ranging in wavelength from about 400 to 750 nm. In photonic applications light can be considered to cover the nonvisible portion of the spectrum which includes the ultraviolet and the infrared.
