LED-curable adhesives for medical devices
Published: 18 December 2011 - Michelle Winny
A complete system of UV adhesives and LED curing has been introduced by Intertronics from its technology partner DYMAX, specifically with assembly of medical devices in mind. The adhesives cure with exposure to light in seconds enabling faster processing and greater output, resulting in lower processing costs.
The combination of the LED Prime UVA Spot Curing Lamp and adhesives lends the benefits of LED-based curing lamps to the medical device manufacturer. This new high-intensity lamp offers many advantages over conventional spot-curing systems, including no consumable bulbs to change, no warm-up, cool cures, and constant intensity for thousands of hours and complementary adhesives. The unit produces high powered LED spot-curing with an output of >15W/cm2.
