SpeedMask® Light-Curable Maskants

SpeedMask® Light-Curable Maskants

Aerospace, Metal Finishing, and Power Generation Component Processing

SpeedMask® light curing masking resins replace tape, wax, lacquers, and fixtures and offer reliable protection against most metal-finishing processing environments. Mask and seal all components in one step! The tenacious adhesion of SpeedMask UV/Visible curable maskants seal and protect machined, ground, or polished surfaces during tumbling, peening, abrading, plating, plasma-spray coatings, or cleaning processes. UV/Visible cure SpeedMask masking resins also seal cooling cavity openings which prevent contamination from acid, alkaline, and plating solutions, as well as the debris from air plasma spray, HVOF, peening, and grit blasting. These masking resins are solvent free allowing your manufacturing process to go green with the elimination of solvent lacquers.

Dymax UV/Visible light-curable masking resins, UV/Visible curing lamps, and accessories bring efficiency and cost reduction to new parts manufacturing, overhaul and repair, turbine and metal finishing. These resins cure in seconds upon exposure to light and are easy to incorporate into automated systems. The SpeedMask masking resins are available in burn-off, peelable, and water soluble grades. These resins are easily removed and leave the surface residue free.
