Master Bond custom formulates products to meet individual design specifications. UV curing grades for form-in-place and cure-in-place gaskets replace die-cut gaskets, RTV sealants and tape. They provide electrical insulation and can be consistently/efficiently dispensed to optimize throughput. Specific grades can be adjusted to meet a wide variety of performance properties including chemical & water resistance, low shrinkage, serviceability at extreme temperatures, self leveling properties and more.
Advantages of UV Curing Adhesives for Form-in-Place Gasket Applications
UV curable adhesives provide a number of advantages over traditional RTV silicones used to produce form-in-place gaskets, including:
- Faster cure times
- Better chemical resistance
- No emission of corrosive elements
- Elimination of stacking and racking
