Light-Curable Adhesives, Coatings, Gaskets, and Masking Materials for Household Appliance Applications

Dymax offers adhesives, coatings, gaskets, and masking materials for appliance applications that cure instantly with light, eliminating the drying or oven-cure period needed with other assembly methods. Parts can be immediately processed upon cure, speeding up production, increasing throughput, and lowering operation costs. Light-curable materials (LCMs) can be used in the manufacture and production of white and brown appliances as well as sub-assemblies and components.

Dymax light-curable materials can be used in the following components:

  • Handles
  • Shelves
  • Displays
