UV Curable Adhesives

UV Curable Adhesives

At National Polymer, our UV Curable Adhesives are custom designed to meet our clients requirements. Our UV Curable Adhesive technology platform has  created unique B-Stage-able adhesive solutions for Industrial and Consumable Product Applications. In additional to adhesives, we have designed a variety of cure on demand coatings for the protection of surfaces in  restaurants, hospitals, and hotels. If you carry a credit card made of a precious metal, our coating is probably protecting it from abrasion and environmental attack.

We design and manufacture UV Curable Adhesives and Coatings that cure with light via a variety of wavelengths, from visible to UV to EB. We build our UV Curable line using oligomers with  polyurethane, polyester, epoxy and silicone backbones. We also design dual cure systems capable of solving unique application challenges.

If the performance of off the shelf UV curable technology does not meet your expectations, look to us to engineer and deliver a Specialty UV curable Adhesive or Coating that meets your needs. We help our customers improve their competitive edge by creating custom formulations that out-perform competitive offerings while meeting the budgetary requirements of our clients.

UV Curable Adhesives

UV Curable Adhesives are adhesives that cure (or crosslink) when exposed to light. They are sometimes known as “cure on demand” adhesives. Other adhesives cure over a period of time via heat (thermal cure), humidity (moisture cure), air (oxygen cured), or chemical reaction (2K or 2-Part systems). One additional category is anaerobic which cure when oxygen is excluded. UV curable adhesives are Specialty Adhesives that are normally clear and bond only clear substrates. However, they can be specially designed to have a dual cure. This enables them to bond opaque materials where light is not present. This is typically done via an intermediate step known as “B-staging” or gelling the adhesive to initiate the bond and the heating it or exposing it to moisture to finish the cure (“C-stage”). At National Polymer, we excel at designing versatile Specialty Adhesives with Dual Cures.
