Light Guides

High Intensity Curing with Single- and Multipole UV Light Guides


Flexible UV light guides for spot-curing systems provide rapid and controlled light curing of UV adhesives, coatings, and sealants. A liquid light guide is an optical instrument comprised of a light-conducting liquid core within plastic tubing. The liquid is non-toxic, non-flammable, and transparent from 270 to 720 nm. The ends of UV curing wands are sealed with high-quality quartz glass and metal spiral tubing, surrounded by a plastic sleeve for exterior protection.

Features

Features

  • Protected against degradation with the Dymax Cool Blue™ Filter
  • Transmit 20-30% more UVA light than more costly quartz light wands
  • Stand up to cleaning and flexing better than quartz fiber
  • Light spectrum output is more favorable to photoinitiators in the UVA, violet, as well as blue ranges (300-460 nm)
  • Standard Dymax multipole configurations incorporate integrating rods for a more balanced output from pole-to-pole

How to Clean Liquid Lightguides

Liquid lightguides help minimize degradation of light intensity over time and transmit the highest light intensity available for UV curing. But when light guides are not clean, the performance of your curing set up can become compromised. In this video, you'll learn how to tell when a liquid light guide needs to be cleaned, and how to clean it, ensuring optimal light-curing performance.
