Light-Curable Adhesives and Coatings for Industrial Assembly Applications

Dymax adhesives are designed to rapidly bond glass, metal, and plastic substrates upon exposure to UV/Visible light, while providing design engineers with tools to dramatically improve manufacturing efficiency and reduce costs. Dymax solvent-free adhesives are environmentally friendly, RoHS compliant, and meet the demands of challenging applications in a variety of markets. They provide significant manufacturing advantages including reduced labor and assembly costs, improved in-line inspection with fluorescing grades, reduced WIP, shorter cycle times, fewer assembly stations, and elimination of ovens and racking.

Product Highlight

Multi-Cure® 9451 Black Conformal Coating

Our new Multi-Cure® 9451 is a true black conformal coating developed specifically for this purpose. Like a typical conformal coating it improves circuit reliability in harsh conditions, but it also has the added benefit of being able to mask markings, labels, sensitive information, and other identification on the circuit board. This coating can be applied and cured up to 5 mils thick in one pass but can be dispensed in multiple passes if a thicker coating is required. Learn more…
