Press Release Summary:
Suited for spot curing of coatings as well as adhesive bonding of polycarbonate, PVC, PET, metal, glass, and many other substrates, BlueWave(TM) LED high-intensity UV spot curing system does not use metal halide or mercury bulbs, and produces visible light energy in narrow wavelength band centered at 410 nm. System emits maximum visible light intensity output of over 2,500 mW/cmÂ² from 8 mm dia lightguide, and allows users to adjust intensity output from 0-100%.

Get Cool, Consistent, Visible Light Curing with New DYMAX BlueWave(TM) LED System
March 19, 2008
The new BlueWave(TM) LED visible light, high-intensity spot curing system from DYMAX Corporation offers many advantages over traditional UV spot curing systems including... no bulbs to change, cool cures, no warm-up, and constant intensity for thousands of hours. The BlueWave LED generates light using an array of surface mount LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) instead of traditional metal halide or mercury bulbs. The LEDs produce visible light energy in a relatively narrow wavelength band centered at 410 nm, as contrasted to a typical broad band, high-pressure UV bulb (300-500 nm). This system emits a maximum visible light intensity output of over 2,500 mW/cm² from an 8 mm diameter lightguide, and allows users to adjust intensity output from 0% to 100%. The relatively narrow band produced by LEDs generates cooler curing temperatures. The BlueWave LED is excellent for spot curing of coatings, as well as adhesive bonding of polycarbonate, PVC, PET, metal, glass and many other substrates.
The BlueWave LED curing system can cure many of DYMAX's visible light curing adhesives that are currently being produced. Their Applications Engineering Group can offer adhesive recommendations for assembly processes utilizing the BlueWave LED curing systems.
DYMAX Corporation is a technology-based company specializing in the formulation, manufacture and service of advanced assembly adhesives, coatings, epoxies, masking resins, and UV curing systems.
