See-Cure Color-Change Adhesive Technology

Light-Curable Adhesives with Built-In Cure Validation

See-Cure Light-Curable Adhesives

Dymax light-curable adhesives with patented See-Cure technology have built-in visual cure validation that makes it easy for operators, or simple automated optical inspection systems, to confirm cure without the need for additional specialized equipment. Adhesives with See-Cure technology are blue prior to cure, enabling the user to confirm adhesive placement. During the light-curing process, the blue color disappears and provides an obvious confirmation that the adhesive is cured and the bond is secure.

See-Cure products help:

  • Increase throughput
  • Reduce scrap
  • Save energy and space

Adhesives with See-Cure technology cure in seconds upon exposure to UV/Visible light, providing ultra fast assembly of substrates and components. Formulations are available for medical device, electronics, and plastic assembly. See-Cure Technology can be formulated into many Dymax light-curable adhesives. This new technology does not affect the RoHS compliance of the adhesive and provides similar biocompatibility characteristics for MD® medical device adhesives.
