Loctite® Focused UV Flood Lamp Cures Adhesives Used for Bonding, Potting, Tacking, and Sealing

Rocky Hill, Conn. - November 26, 2009? Henkel Corporation has introduced the Loctite® Focused UV Flood Lamp, a 400-watt compact, lightweight UV light source designed to cure a 4-inch square area. Weighing just over 4 pounds and measuring 7.5L x 4.5W x 5.8H-inches, this unit can be easily hand-held or mounted above a worksite in benchtop production applications.

The Loctite Focused UV Flood Lamp system consists of a 4-inch, 400 watt metal halide lamp that emits in the UVA and UVB regions. The operator simply turns the lamp on and places it over the assembly to be cured for the appropriate length of time for cure to be completed. An energy-saving standby position switch reduces the lamp's output power by half when the unit is not being used.
