Ultra-Red™ Fluorescing Technology Enables Accurate Bond-Line Inspection and Product Verification

Published on 2008-01-02. Author : SpecialChem

DYMAX has introduced Ultra-Red™ fluorescing technology. Many plastics naturally fluoresce blue under UV light - this minimizes the inspection advantages of using blue-fluorescing adhesives in parts assembly. Ultra-Red fluorescing adhesives from DYMAX remain naturally clear until exposed to UV light, at which point they fluoresce bright red providing a vivid contrast that permits accurate bond-line inspection. The red fluorescence does not absorb the same light energy wavelengths as those used to cure the adhesive, resulting in faster and deeper cures when compared with the same adhesives containing blue fluorescence.

Ultra-Red™ Fluorescing Technology from DYMAX ensures accurate bond-line inspection and product verification.

DYMAX Ultra-Red fluorescing technology can be used by manufacturers for product authentication. By virtue of its patented technology, the red-fluorescing compound is exclusive to DYMAX for use in radiation-cured adhesives and coatings. When measured, this technology produces a distinctly unique energy peak that cannot be reproduced by any other fluorescing compound. This offers manufacturers the ability to assemble or mark their products and be assured that, in the event of a future challenge as to the authenticity of the product's origins, the products can be positively identified.

DYMAX Ultra-Red fluorescing technology is RoHS compliant.

DYMAX Corporation is a technology-based company specializing in the formulation, manufacture and service of advanced assembly adhesives, coatings, epoxies, masking resins, and UV curing systems.
