In-line curing allows for increased production speed, lower processing costs, and reduced inventories.
Dymax Corporation's See-Cure GA-140-SC is a UV/Visible light-curable, Form-In-Place (FIP), Cure-In-Place (CIP) gasketing resin that is ideal for applications requiring soft, tack-free, flexible gaskets for sealing fuel cells, critical electronic assemblies such as LCD frame assemblies, and plastic assemblies. The product, which offers significant advantages over traditional gasketing materials, is a silicone-free, one-part resin that requires no mixing and can be dispensed into intricate and complex configurations. Its ability to be cured in-line allows for increased production speed and throughput, lower processing costs, and reduced inventories.
GA-140-SC is a soft, low-outgassing gasket resin that cures in seconds, conforms to intricate channels or recesses, and has excellent tear resistance for serviceable and limited-service applications. Designed for flat flanges, wide shallow grooves, or flat surfaces, Dymax permanent FIP gaskets can eliminate the delay experienced with slow-curing resins as well as the design, inventory, and labor expense associated with pre-cut gaskets.
Formulated with patented See-Cure technology, GA-140-SC is bright blue in an uncured state, enabling automated vision systems and manual operations to confirm placement prior to cure. As the product cures with sufficient exposure, its blue color transitions to clear and provides obvious visual confirmation that the adhesive is fully cured and the bond site is secure.
