Master Bond’s dual curing compounds cure both upon exposure to UV light and upon exposure to heat. These adhesives, sealants and coatings are applied to assemblies where complete UV curing is either too difficult or impossible to achieve, such as applications with complex geometries and concealed, “shadowed out” areas.
Our Line of UV + Heat Dual Curing Products
Master Bond offers a full line of 100% reactive, UV + Heat dual curing products that reach full cure with UV energy, heat energy, or both. The UV cure reduces fixturing time while heat ensures complete cure throughout the bond line, especially for areas not accessible to UV light. The thermal cure is typically initiated at temperatures as low as 80°C (176°F) which opens new opportunities for thermally sensitive substrates. These features make them ideal for applications including but not limited to electronic assemblies, and 3D printing.
Easy Curing Process of Master Bond’s Dual Curing Adhesives
These products are available in a wide range of viscosities, and they exhibit high bond strength with glass, metals, ceramics, and many plastics. They offer easy application and incredibly fast cures. The exposed areas of dual curing adhesives can cure in a few seconds when UV light is applied and the shadowed out areas cure in about 20 to 30 minutes upon exposure to heat.
Master Bond Cationic and Free Radical Dual Cure Systems
Master Bond’s extensive line of dual cure systems includes products with many different chemistries, including:
