Highly efficient UVLED curing process with IR irradiation

Kazuo Ashikaga, Heraeus KK

Abstract:Novel UV curing process by a LED lamp has been developed to enhance capability of UV curable materials. The process is featured by IR irradiation prior UV irradiation. UV curable materials are activated by IR irradiation just before UV irradiation and higher double bond conversions are observed for cured materials, compared to those obtained by merely UVLED irradiation. Unique results obtained will be described.
