Intertronics Technical Seminar at FAST Exhibition

01 September 2014

Intertronics will present a technical seminar on the subject of "Curing adhesives, coatings and sealants with light” at the forthcoming FAST Exhibition – September 10th at the Williams Conference Centre. This, along with their presence in the exhibition itself, will give visitors the opportunity to discuss the benefits with the team on their exhibition stand.

In the free seminar (pre-registration required), Intertronics M.D. Peter Swanson will describe how UV/visible light curing has given manufacturers process advantages, including speed, for some decades. Proven applications include structural bonding, protective coatings, temporary masking and form-in-place gaskets, in sectors such as electronics, medical devices, automotive and aerospace.

The workshop will review the technology, including the latest developments with the use of LEDs as a source for curing light, which can offer significant advantages over conventional broad spectrum UV sources. The range of materials which are optimised to cure with LED lamps is expanding, and includes plastic, glass and metal bonding. Examples will be given to demonstrate the benefits applicable to a wide range of manufacturing operations.

During the session delegates will learn: How light curing works, what it can achieve, what are the limitations, how to know it is cured and what LED curing technology brings to the party.
