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.
