UV curing in the electronics industry

Manufacturers of electronic components, assemblies and products in markets such as aerospace, automotive, medical, and consumer electronics use UV curing to improve production rates and product quality.

UV cure conformal coating of electronic assemblies

UV curing is widely used for electronics applications such as adhesive bonding and assembly, component marking, gasketing and sealing, potting, masking, encapsulating, and conformal coating. The rapid cure and lower temperature UV curing process improves production rates without damage to sensitive electronic components.

UV curing enables in-line testing, further assembly, minimized handling, increased throughput and product life – all while eliminating the space and energy requirements of heat cures.

Your advantages with UV curing:

  • Increased production rates
  • Reduced work-in-process
  • Protection of sensitive components and substrates
  • More durable and reliable products - increased abrasion and chemical resistance, higher bonding strength of dissimilar materials
  • Low energy and space requirements

UV curing is used for:

Applications of LED curing
  • Conformal coating of printed circuit boards (PCB)
  • Cable assembly and marking
  • Bonding (optically clear adhesives) and sealing of cell phone and other displays
  • Wire tacking, die and pin attachments
  • Precision bonding of miniature components such as micro-speakers, camera modules, and disk drives
  • Encapsulation of chips and other electronic components
  • Sealing and gaskets on electronic enclosures
  • Glob tops on PCBs
  • Markings on cables and electronic components
  • Printed and flexible electronics
  • Semiconductor fabrication
