Ultraviolet (UV) radiation causes a photochemical reaction to occur when exposed to certain polymers such as epoxies, polyurethane and silicone glue, which instantly dries and cures the polymer. This photochemical reaction occurs quickly, in a matter of seconds upon exposure to the specialty UV lamps.
Benefits of UV Curing
There are many benefits provided with UV curing when compared to other methods such as air drying and application of chemical solutions. UV curing offers the fastest cure time over these other methods, improving cycle times and product throughput. Companies that utilize UV curing in their process experience an increase in productivity and profitability.
UV radiation also improves the quality of products with a stronger, more durable bond. With instant curing, there is no time for evaporation which occurs with air drying leaving an uneven and often contaminated surface. UV lamps drastically improve product quality while increasing productivity.
With UV lamps for curing, there is no need to purchase and store harmful chemicals, offering a safer work environment for employees. UV curing lamps provide many cost-saving benefits with very low maintenance.
