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, and 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.
