Speed Up Your Process and Safeguard Against Incomplete Cures

Dymax adhesives formulated with Encompass® technology

Dymax adhesives formulated with Encompass® technology incorporate Dymax exclusive See-Cure color change and Ultra-Red® fluorescing technologies into one light-curable product. As a result, manufacturers gain efficiencies from rapid on-demand curing with easy cure confirmation and post-cure bond-line inspection.

See-Cure is a patented built-in visual cure-validation technology. Adhesives with See-Cure technology transition from blue to colorless upon exposure to sufficient light energy indicating cure has been achieved.

Ultra-Red® fluorescing technology enhances bond-line inspection processes and product authentication. The adhesives remain clear until exposed to low-intensity UV light at which point they fluoresce bright red. This is particularly effective when bonding plastics that naturally fluoresce blue, such as PVC and PET. Ultra-Red® technology also produces a unique spectral signature that can be used by manufacturers for product authentication.
