Press Release Summary:
Used for bonding and sealing, UV15X-5 single-component urethane elastomer withstands thermal cycling and mechanical shock. Its formulation exhibits abrasion resistance and forms chemical-resistant bonds between similar and dissimilar substrates. This 100% reactive product, which does not contain any solvents or volatiles, cures in thicknesses greater than 1/8 in. at room temperature upon exposure to UV light. Tensile strength is 1,800 psi, and Shore D hardness is 35-40.
Original Press Release:
New UV Curable Adhesive/Sealant Has High Flexibility
Master Bond Inc., Hackensack, N.J. has introduced a new one component, UV curable urethane elastomer called UV15X-5 for bonding and sealing applications. This unique formulation is highly flexible and exhibits outstanding abrasion resistance. It is designed to withstand thermal cycling and mechanical shock. UV15X-5 bonds well to both similar and dissimilar substrates. Bonds are durable and resist exposure to many chemicals. UV15X-5 is 100% reactive and does not contain any solvents or volatiles.
Master Bond UV15X-5 cures at room temperatures in very short time periods upon exposure to UV light. The more powerful the light source the quicker the cure. Additionaly UV15X-5 will cure in thicknesses greater than 1/8" thick. UV15X-5 is not air inhibited. No special inert atmosphere is required for curing.
UV15X-5 has high physical strength properties. It has a tensile strength of 1,800 psi. Its Shore D hardness is 35-40 and its elongation is >170%. Additionally it is transparent and has a refractive index of 1.498. It also offers superior electrical insulation properties. Its volume resistivity is >1012 ohm cm.
UV15X-5 is available for use in 1/2 pint, pint, quart, gallon and 5 gallon containers. It is also available for use in syringe applicators.
