Master Bond Unveils Epoxy based, UV Curable, UV15, for Optical & Electronic Coating

Published on 2012-08-17. Author : SpecialChem

With its outstanding light transmission properties and optical clarity, Master Bond UV15 is widely used for a variety of bonding, coating and sealing applications in the optical, electronic and optoelectronic industries. This epoxy based UV curable system is 100% reactive and does not contain any solvents or other volatiles. It is also completely free of any oxygen inhibition.

Like most UV systems, Master Bond UV15 will cure quickly and easily when exposed to a UV light source with a wavelength range between 320-365 nm. It typically cures in thicknesses of a few microns to 0.015-0.020 inches in 15-30 seconds or less. UV15 cures by a cationic reaction and produces bonds that have lower shrinkage (1-2%) and higher temperature resistance than most UV systems. Its glass transition temperature (Tg) is 90-95°C with a straight UV cure. When post cured for 30 minutes at 125°C, the Tg is 125-130°C. The service temperature range for this system is -80°F to +350°F.

UV15 has excellent resistance to a wide variety of chemicals including water, acids, bases, fuels and many solvents. It features superb physical strength characteristics and electrical insulation properties. UV15's low viscosity allows it to be spin coated. It has superior adhesion to a wide variety of substrates including plastics, glass and many metals. UV15 is available in syringes, ½ pints, pints, quarts, gallons and 5 gallon containers.
