5 Factors to Consider Before Selecting an LCM

Fast on-demand curing, cost and energy savings, environmentally friendly are just a few of the many benefits to using light-curable materials (LCMs) in the manufacturing process. But that process could come with some headaches if good process control...

5 Reasons You Should Not Repackage Adhesive and Coating Products

Is there a product that you are not able to purchase in the optimal package size that you want? Are you tempted to repackage bulk material into smaller containers or perhaps consolidate smaller containers into bulk?

5 Reasons to Choose Light-Curable Adhesives Over One-Part Silicones

You are trying to choose the best adhesive for your application, or maybe you’re looking for an alternative to the current one you’re using. Let’s assume you’re comparing between a light-curable adhesive and a one-part-silicone. Which one do you...

How Can Light-Curable Materials Benefit Your Manufacturing Process Controls?

Good process controls help manufacturers turn out the best version of their products and have fewer headaches along the way. In our latest white paper, we explore the benefits of using light-curable materials in the manufacturing process, and what these...

Chemical Compatibility of 190-M Adhesive

We currently use 190-M for sealing epoxy-potted polypropylene fibers. What is the chemical compatibility of Dymax 190-M to aqueous Sulfuric acid at 40% concentration and Hydrochloric acid at the same concentration? If the 190-M information is not...

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...

Mechanical Properties of UV Adhesives

"In my application I have a process where I apply UV adhesive between two pieces of plastic and I am seeing a short contraction period followed by a longer expansion period. Is it possible for UV adhesive to behave this way? How much does UV adhesive...
