UV Curing Applications
UV Curing and its benefits
UV(Ultraviolet) curing is a photochemical reaction process in which intense ultraviolet light is applied to initiate polymerization. The main benefit of using UV curing is its ability to dry instantaneously than conventional methods, and in turn speeds up the production where curing is applicable. Apart from that, the capacity to cure quickly has proven to reduce defective finished goods.
The UV curing process is now widely used in the manufacturing industry, as it works well with a variety of materials and provides durable and superior bonding results. Hence, this process is usually used in applications such as coating protection, encapsulants and sealants. Inks, adhesives, or coatings can be cured on surfaces of wood, plastic, glass, ceramics, metals and even electronics.
The implementation of UV curing techniques to the printing industry has helped save a vast amount of time, as the curing inks dries up rapidly than traditional organic solvent-based inks. Therefore, the printing process can be completed almost immediately.
On top of that, the overall image quality is better as compared to solvent-based inks and provides a lasting effect.
UV Coating offers corrosion-resistant protection and prevents polymer degradation of pipes. UV-cured automotive windows and eyeglasses reduces the ultraviolet rays that passes through them and prevents glare for the users. UV curing can also be applied over wood, plastic, and aluminum surfaces as a protection layer against wear and tear.
Lastly, adhesives are exposed to ultraviolet light which are used for the bonding of materials made of metal, glass, plastic, and ceramic of which one of the parts must be transparent for the penetration of the ultraviolet rays.
