White Paper: Designing in light curing adhesives – a holistic approach to adhesives in medical device assembly

UV curable adhesives grant significant manufacturing productivity benefits, curing in seconds, “on-demand” when exposed to UV light. With grades certified to ISO 10993 and USP Class VI stands available, they are also well-matched to the manufacture of medical devices. To fully realise the potential that this adhesive technology can bring, it is necessary to take […]

White Paper: UV light and moisture curable electronics encapsulants

Encapsulants are often required to protect electronic components against moisture, chemicals, and rapid and extreme temperature changes while providing mechanical support and electrical insulation. Light-curable encapsulating compounds can provide significant benefits over conventional technologies, including very fast curing, lower operating costs and increased productivity driven by lower labour requirements, space savings, lower energy demand, and […]
