One component, paste consistency UV curable system
- Stays in place when applied
- Superb adhesive, sealant
- Superior physical strength properties
- Enhanced toughness and durability
Master Bond UV15-7TK1ANV is a one component UV curable polymer system with a paste consistency for high performance bonding, sealing and special encapsulation. This system is 100% reactive and does not contain any solvents or diluents. Its most salient features include superior physical strength properties, low shrinkage upon curing and enhanced non-yellowing stability. UV15-7TK1ANV offers very good chemical resistance to water, fuels, and oils, among others. It exhibits an exceptional combination of properties including outstanding durability, and good electrical insulation properties, along with fine thermal cycling capabilities. UV15-7TK1ANV bonds well to a wide variety of substrates including glass, metals and plastics, including polycarbonates, acrylics and polyester films. UV15-7TK1ANV is translucent and has a service temperature range of -80°F to +300°F.
Master Bond UV15-7TK1ANV system is not oxygen inhibited and cures readily in 10-20 seconds when exposed to a UV light source emitting at a wavelength of 320-365 nm with an energy output of 20 milliwatts/cm². No solvents or vapors are released during the curing process. The rate of cure depends upon the compound’s distance from the light source, the thickness of the section and, of course, the intensity of the light source. It should be noted that the system can cure in sections up to 1/8 inch. However, when bonding, sections of a few thousandths of an inch are more than adequate. This system can be used in optical, fiber-optic, electronic, laser, microelectronic and semiconductor applications, when a robust UV curable paste consistency system is desirable.
