Our customisation solutions
Colour options for UV adhesives:Fotopolymer can incorporate various pigmented and fluorescent colours into our UV adhesives while balancing the curing performance. Such modifications enable visual and machine inspections of the adhesives after dispensing, ensuring it has been applied at the right places and with the right amount. This feature is well suited for high-speed or automated manufacturing. Colour change functionality is also available on request for visual indication of curing progress.
Wide formulating range of modulus and elongation:
Fotopolymer understands the physical properties of an adhesive such as the modulus, tensile strength and elongation play a critical role in providing the functional performances required for an application. We can formulate a wide range of varying modulus, tensile and elongation to obtain different physical and mechanical behaviours ranging from hard-strong, hard-tough, hard-rigid, elastic-tough, elastic-strong to elastic-yielding. We also formulate adhesive with extremely high elongation of up to 800%.
Combination curing options :
Most assemblies have complex geometry, which blocks some applied adhesives from UV light exposure. Fotopolymer can offer different dual curing options such as UV thermal cure, UV moisture-cure, UV activated cationic cure, two components mixing and UV cure, UV pressure sensitive cure, etc, to facilitate our customers’ ease of use and assembly process
Adhesion on passive substrates and inactive surfaces:
The adhesion of our products on the intended substrates is critical in ensuring that the bonding performance meets the functional requirements of our customers’ assembly. This consideration is especially true when bonding dissimilar substrates and challenging substrates. Fotopolymer understands the diverse scientific disciplines and practical aspects that influence the adhesion on such substrates. Therefore, we can optimise the adhesion of our products on various passive substrates and inactive surfaces such as LCP, PPA, PEEK, PI, Titanium, ITO glass, etc.
Durability and reliability under extreme and harsh conditions:
We appreciate that our adhesives are often an essential factor in the long-term reliability of any product built to last. We can develop adhesives with the necessary durability properties to withstand prolonged exposure to moisture, chemicals, and heat.
