BlueWave LED System

TORRINGTON, Conn., May 28, 2008 -- The new BlueWave LED visible light, high-intensity spot curing system from Dymax Corp. generates light using an array of surface-mount LEDs instead of traditional metal halide or mercury bulbs. This offers many advantages over traditional ultraviolet (UV) spot curing systems, the company said, including: no bulbs to change, cool cures, no warm-up, and constant intensity for thousands of hours.

The LEDs produce visible light energy in a relatively narrow wavelength band centered at 410 nm, as contrasted to a typical broad band, high-pressure UV bulb (300-500 nm). This system emits a maximum visible light intensity output of over 2500 mW/cm2 from an 8-mm-diameter lightguide, BlueWave.jpgand allows users to adjust intensity output from 0 to 100 percent. The relatively narrow band produced by LEDs generates cooler curing temperatures. The BlueWave LED is excellent for spot curing of coatings, as well as adhesive bonding of polycarbonate, PVC, PET, metal, glass and many other substrates, the company said.

The BlueWave LED curing system can cure many of Dymax's visible light curing adhesives that are currently being produced. The company's Applications Engineering group can offer adhesive recommendations for assembly processes utilizing the BlueWave LED curing systems.

GLOSSARY
adhesive
An intermolecular substance that serves to hold materials together. Two types are used in the optical industry: one, which must be transparent and colorless, to cement lenses together; and a general-purpose adhesive for bonding prisms and other glass parts to their metallic supports.
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.
halide
An MX-type compound of which fluorine, chlorine, iodine, bromine or astatine is a constituent. Glasses based on halides, in particular heavy metal fluoride glass (HMFG), demonstrate promise for infrared fiber transmission over very long distances.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
