The resin’s adhesion enables it to protect substrates during aggressive blasting processes and chemical exposures.

Dymax Corp.’s new SpeedMask 731 yellow masking resin is for darker colored substrates where other maskants might be difficult to see. The yellow resin fluoresces under black light to confirm proper placement prior to processing and clean removal after processing. Dymax says the resin’s adhesion enables it to protect substrates during aggressive blasting processes and chemical exposures. It is designed to have excellent adhesion to nickel alloys, steel, stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, cobalt and glass and can be used in a variety of industries including aerospace, power generation, orthopedic joint replacement and precision metal finishing.

SpeedMask 731 is jettable, it holds its shape after application and it is easily removed through peeling or incineration and leaves no residue upon removal from nonporous surfaces, according to the company, which adds that the product’s 500 percent elongation and low shrinkage properties make it a resilient post-cure maskant.
