Intertronics has unveiled the Bluewave LED adhesive cure system, designed for adhesive bonding of polycarbonate, PVC, PET, metal and glass, as well as the spot curing of various coatings.

The Bluewave LED Prime UVA high-intensity spot-curing system features many advantages over conventional spot-curing systems, according to the company.

These include: no consumable bulbs to change; no warm-up; cool cures; and constant intensity for thousands of hours.

Curing energy is generated using high-intensity LEDs (light-emitting diodes) and produces nearly double the intensity of other LED spot-curing lamps, Intertronics claimed.

This system delivers maximum curing energy through a 5mm-diameter lightguide, with an output of up to 15W/cm2.

While providing more power, the design is also said to eliminate the safety concerns from the high heat generated by units with the LED array at the end of the wand.

In addition, the relatively narrow frequency band produced by LEDs generates cooler curing temperatures at the substrate level.

The unit us CE certified, RoHS compliant, offers user-friendly operation and offers a useful LED life of more than 50,000 hours.

The Bluewave LED Prime UVA also includes an intensity adjustment feature, which allows users to adjust and control intensity output from 0 per cent to 100 per cent to assist with process validation and control.

Intensity level measurement is easily accomplished with a radiometer.

An Accu-Cal 50-LED radiometer may be used to take readings through the lightguide in process development and actual production settings, providing an accurate and consistent of light-intensity measurement whether using single- or multi-legged lightguides.
