Original Press Release:
New Two-Part UV Potting Compounds Cure In Seconds to an Inch or More and Through Shadowed Areas
A new line of two-part UV curing potting compounds called Trigger Cure(TM) have an instant UV curing feature, with the ability to cure at room temperature to depths of an inch or more, and in areas under components where the light does not reach. The 1:1 two-component products are designed for ease of application through typical disposable tip static mix dispensers. Following dispensing, exposure to longwave UV light cures the products to a depth of 1/4 inch in 20 seconds or less. The remaining liquid resin gels in 7 to 20 minutes. Full cure is achieved in 24 hours at room temperature.
These two-part plus UV curing potting materials provide the fast cure benefits of light curing products with the chemical cure of traditional potting compounds. Light is used to cure the top layer up to 1/4" deep, while the two-part chemical cure continues in shadow and deeper areas in the potting cavity. There is no need to have parts sitting on racks waiting to cure, or for an off-line heat curing process.
The resins are suitable for a variety of electrical and electronic applications, including the potting of sensors, printed circuit boards and LED's. Grades are rated for UL 94V-0 applications. Besides their good environmental resistance, adhesion to substrates, and hard outer surface, DYMAX two-part UV potting compounds form a resilient, low stress protective encapsulant around delicate parts found below the UV cured surface.
