Intertronics has launched DYMAX Encompass technology in a range of adhesives that exhibit colour change (See-Cure) and red fluorescence (Ultra-Red) coupled with light curing capability. These adhesives are expected to appeal to industries such as medical device manufacturing and electronics production.

DYMAX Encompass technology

According to the company, this combination of features offers the significant improvements in production efficiencies gained from rapid on-demand curing while ensuring improved quality outcomes, since it is possible to quickly inspect full adhesive joint coverage and cure, as well as post-cure assurance of bond line integrity coupled with material validation post production.

While in an uncured state, Encompass adhesives formulated with See-Cure technology are blue in colour for easy verification of joint fill and placement. Then as the product cures with sufficient exposure to UV light, its blue colour transitions to colourless and provides visual confirmation that the adhesive is fully cured and the bond site is secure.

The further incorporation of Ultra-Red technology within Encompass products causes the product to fluoresce bright red under low-intensity black light (365nm), contrasting well on plastics that naturally fluoresce blue in colour (such as PVC). This allows manufacturers to incorporate automated or manual quality inspection to verify complete and accurate placement of the adhesive after cure, as well as enabling product validation.

Encompass technology is currently available to suit varying substrates including platinum, stainless steel, PC, PVC, ABS, CAP, PA Nylon 12, PVC, PET and PEBA.
