The BlueWave LED Prime UVA high-intensity spot-curing system from Dymax is designed to offer advantages over conventional spot-curing systems including no consumable bulbs to change, no warm-up, cool cures, and constant intensity for thousands of hours. The system generates curing energy using high-intensity LEDs (light emitting diodes) and the manufacturer claims it produces nearly double the intensity of any LED spot-curing lamp on the market today. This system delivers curing energy through a 5 mm diameter lightguide, with an output up to 15 W/cm2
. While providing more power, the design also eliminates 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 is CE certified, RoHS compliant, offers user-friendly operation, and boasts a useful LED life of over 50,000 hours. This spot-curing system is ideal for spot curing of various coatings as well as adhesive bonding of polycarbonate, PVC, PET, metal, glass, and many other substrates.
