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. These ecologically friendly, single component, 100% solid silicone free elastomers provide a highly reliable barrier for protection against dust, liquids, gases, contaminants. Flowable or high viscosity products have been engineered to be precisely dispensed in a bead profile on vertical/horizontal grooves, channels, flat surfaces. Adhesion to metals, plastics, glass, ceramic surfaces is excellent. Durable, soft, tack-free Master Bond compositions were developed to optimize throughput speed while lowering labor/production cost. Specific grades cure only in sections upon UV light exposure. Job proven Master Bond FIP/CIP thin/thick gaskets meet a wide variety of performance properties such as the ability to withstand pressure, thermal cycling, shock, impact, transmitting loads.
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:
- Gasket design flexibility
- Faster cure times
- Better chemical resistance
- Elimination of ovens, stacking and racking
- Saving factory space
- Reducing inventory
- Easy automation for high volume production
- No emission of corrosive elements
