UV/Visible Light-Curable Coatings

Conformal, Dome, Keypad, Medical, and Optically Clear Hard Coatings

Dymax manufactures UV/Visible light-curing coatings that are used to cover the surface of substrates or components to protect them from destructive or environmental agents. Dymax carries a full line of uv conformal coatings for use with printed circuit boards. Adhesive coatings can also be used as dome coatings to provide a decorative cover on materials.

Conformal Coatings

Conformal Coatings

Dymax manufactures UV/Visible light curing conformal coatings to protect printed circuit boards. The conformal coating is applied to electronic circuitry to act as protection against moisture, dust, chemicals, and temperature extremes that if uncoated (non-protected) could result in a complete failure of the electronic system. Dymax conformal coatings are available in IPC approved, MIL-I-46058C, and UL listed self-extinguishing grades.

Keypad Coatings

Keypad Coatings

Dymax light-curable keypad coatings are designed to be molded onto plastic films and act as an outer layer of interfaces, including keypads. Dymax light-curing keypad coatings offer design flexibility while performing to stringent interface requirements including most common chemical resistance, impact, abrasion, and pencil-hardness specifications. The molding process enables instant fabrication of various contours, shapes, and textures. Set-up costs are minimal compared to similar performing keypads that require injection molds.

Medical Electronics Coatings

Medical Electronics Coatings

medical electronics coating is a flexible, high-performance, LED-curable coating for electronic applications. This coating contains secondary heat-cure capability for applications where shadowed areas exist. Typical applications include coating of medical micro circuits, sealing, and moisture barrier. Bondable substrates include glass, FR-4, metal, ceramic, and glass-filled epoxy.

Optically Clear Hard Coatings

Optically Clear Hard Coatings

UV-curable optically clear hard coatings are engineered for superior scratch, abrasion, and chemical resistance providing increased protection that results in extended film life. These coatings offer excellent transparency and low haze characteristics, maintaining optical clarity over time for better performance and aesthetics. Dymax optical coatings are used in applications requiring 2 to 12 microns in thickness on various film substrates such as TAC, PET, PC, and PMMA. Optically clear hard coatings for plastics are typically used in the manufacture of electronic touch-panels, polarized sunglasses, safety glasses and goggles, and LCD polarized displays.

Dome/Decorative Coatings

Dome/Decorative Coatings

UV light curable, crystal-clear dome and decorative coatings cure in seconds upon exposure to ultraviolet light. The instant UV light cure feature of one-part Dymax UV curable dome coatings "locks out" airborne contamination and achieves consistent viscosity results producing fewer rejects and less scrap. UV curable dome coatings and decorative coatings contain no solvents, toxic Mercury, or isocyanates and are ideal for coating labels, badges, name tags, pens, key chains, decals, and novelties.
