Mercury lamps use vaporized mercury and an electric arc to produce light, usually in an outer lamp that is coated with phosphor. The phosphor coating helps to offset the bluish-green tint created from the mercury vapor, which can be an unflattering light in public places. The phosphor coating helps to emit a white light which is pleasing in public...

UV Ink Curing Systems are specialty machines and equipment that use UV light to cure inks, adhesives or coatings onto various substrates. When UV light is used at the proper wavelength, or nanometer (nm), and exposed to the specialty inks or coatings, a photochemical reaction occurs instantly drying the ink. This UV curing occurs very quickly,...

UV Glue Curing Provides Unbreakable Liquid Plastic Bond
Referred to as liquid glue, UV glue curing is a superior bonding method although this is really a polymer, rather than a glue. This polymer is often in a silicon glue form, an epoxy, polyurethane, or other polymer that will dry clear only when exposed to UV light. The UV wavelength is a...

UV Polymer curing is a process that uses UV light to alter the properties of a polymer, or photopolymer. A photopolymer is the term for a polymer that responds to UV light, which is basically invisible electromagnetic radiation. When a photopolymer, which can be a variety of resins, is exposed to the UV radiation, it will typically harden and...

The process of UV curing has been around since the 1960’s and uses high intensity ultraviolet light to create a photochemical reaction. By using the proper intensity of UV wavelengths, a byproduct is produced that hardens resin and dries inks. It offers numerous advantages over traditional heat-cured systems and has become the method of choice for...
