UV & Light Curing
Some applications can require certain aesthetic criteria for bonding, alongside functionality and quick cure times. Our customers have achieved this in these case studies of bespoke furniture design, metal bonding and torches to withstand harsh conditions.
Electronic textiles development benefits from UV curing resin and precise dispensing
The Advanced Textiles Research Group at Nottingham Trent University has been developing electronic textiles to add functionality to materials and garments. Part of the process involves encasing microchips within a polymer micro-pod in order to protect them from mechanical and chemical stresses during everyday use.
Improving masking process for electroless nickel plating in Aerospace and Defense applications
A manufacturer of landing gear and actuation systems for the aerospace market was looking for efficiencies in their electroless nickel plating process. They wanted to automate the masking process and increase throughput, which they achieved with Dymax SpeedMask 7601 and a Dymax BlueWave 200 UV curing lamp.
Coatings expertise set to automate the aerospace industry
A leading UK aerospace company commissioned Astech Projects to build a bespoke Automated Masking System to mask complex areas of aircraft components in order to avoid precious metal coverage during the manufacturing process. Astech worked with Intertronics to incorporate precision volumetric dispensing, Dymax SpeedMask resin, and high intensity UV curing lamps.
