Light-Curable Masks Increase Productivity and Reduce Waste
(PresseBox) (Wiesbaden, )Dymax Corporation has published a new article, Customized Masking Solutions Don't Require Customized Masks, written by Virginia Read, Market Segment Manager – Industrial. The article answers questions such as, “What is masking and why it is necessary?” and “How do UV-curable maskants work?” It also covers the various types of masking resins, such as burn-off and peelable resins, as well as the advantages of light-curable masking resins. A detailed cost analysis is included to demonstrate the significant savings of a UV masking process over a tape process.
Manufacturers masking with conventional methods know the challenges associated with complex design configurations and the need for reliable protection from aggressive chemical processes, high temperature coatings, or other surface treatment processes. Faced with the most challenging economic conditions in decades, they have aggressively sought means to reduce costs without sacrificing product quality. Light-curable masks provide significant advantages over conventional masking methods by offering several avenues to increase productivity, ensure reliable protection, and reduce waste. These high-performance materials are ideal alternatives to waxes, lacquers, tapes, and costly customized boots, plugs, or caps.
