UV Curing Instantly Cures and Strengthens Polymers


Ultraviolet (UV) technology is used across a multitude of commercial and industrial applications to instantly cure polymers in seconds.  UV radiation causes a photochemical reaction on polymers such as polyurethane, epoxies, and silicone glue by instantly curing, drying, sealing or bonding within seconds of exposure to UV light.

UV curing has several advantages over other treatment methods such as chemicals or air drying. Due to the speed in which ultraviolet light cures polymers, there is no time for the evaporation of inks and coatings. UV curing provides a more consistent process resulting in a higher quality product over drying methods.  UV methods for curing polymers offers many advantages over the use of chemical drying agents as well. UV curing quickly seals polymers without the use of harmful chemicals, providing a safer workplace for employees and eliminating the need to store or dispose of chemicals.

UV curing provides a consistent process, resulting in enhanced product strength and durability for higher quality product, without contamination from particles in the air or the use of chemicals.

Miniature Lamps Provide Innovative Backlighting Solutions

LS post 65LCD Lighting is the leading manufacturer of miniature lamps that are used to illuminate the essential primary avionics display in many of today’s commercial, private and military aircrafts. In addition our high-quality miniature lamps are used in laptops, ATM’s, medical monitors, kiosk displays, or as OEM replacement lamps for similar devices.

Typically one of our miniature lamps incorporate a multiple bend lamp configuration and is used to backlight a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) such as that found in a laptop computer. To help determine the size, shape and power of the lamp you need, we take into account your particular application and/or environment it will be used in. Miniature lamps are usually placed on the edge of a LCD or directly behind in order to best reflect the light through the LCD.

LCDL’s multi-bend miniature lamps are available in sizes of outside diameters (O.D.) from 6mm to 20mm. Furthermore, they come in a variety of shapes that include grid lamps, circular lamps and interlocking lamps. Our grid lamps are designed with more than one “U” bend in one plane and with electrode legs in the same plane, a parallel plane or at right angles to the plane of the grid. This unique design allows the edge effect to be minimized and to enhance the available lamp’s energy when viewing the LCD application from a variety of viewing angles. Our circular lamps are available in virtually any size and can be oval as well as circular. LCDL’s interlocking lamps are perfect for applications that require redundancy in the event one lamp fails.

The advantage of our miniature lamps is they provide our customers with a more efficient, single lamp system.
