What Are the Two Basic Types of Light-Curable Materials?

In the 1960s ultraviolet (UV) light-curing technology was originally developed as an alternative to solvent-based, heat- and air-drying processes and slow-curing silicones, epoxies, urethanes, pressure-sensitive tapes, cyanoacrylates, modified...

Light-Curable Adhesives and Permanent Implantation

"Is there a UV-curable adhesive that when cured conforms to USP Class VI and passes ISO 10993 requirements for permanent implant?"
 
Unfortunately, not that I am aware of. Technically, most light-curable adhesives are acrylated urethanes or epoxy-based...

How does humidity affect the adhesive?

In the uncured state, humidity under most normal conditions of 0-70% Relative Humidity (RH) has no impact on a light-curable adhesives . It does not affect the curing time, chemical properties, or adhesion to the substrate. At 70% RH or higher, we...
