See-Cure Adhesive Technology Featured on "Inside Business"

Dymax See-Cure Color Change Cure Indicating Adhesive Technology Featured on "Inside Business". We've answered the two most important questions in the adhesive industry: How can I tell where the adhesive has been applied? Dymax adhesives formulated with See-Cure technology are bright blue in their uncured state. This makes it easy to see where the adhesive has been dispensed onto substrates. Any voids in the bond-line can be immediately corrected before curing. How do I know the adhesive is cured? You can tell the adhesive is cured because it changes from blue to clear when exposed to UV light. You can see the bond-line has been completely cured, so you're assured the part won't fail.



Patented See-Cure Technology - Blue to Pink Masking Resins

Dymax masking resins formulated with See-Cure technology are bright blue in the uncured state. The blue color is easily visible against clear and most colored substrates, enabling simple confirmation of the quantity and location of placement. As the maskant cures, the blue color within the product transitions to pink upon full cure. This serves as a visible confirmation that the product has received a sufficient dose of energy to cure.



Patented See-Cure Adhesive Technology

See it cure right before your eyes!
See-Cure light-curable adhesives are bright blue in an uncured state enabling simple confirmation of the quantity and location of their placement. As the adhesive begins to cure, its blue color begins to transition and ultimately turns clear after full cure. This serves as a visible confirmation that the adhesive has received a sufficient dose of energy to reach full cure.



See Cure Technology Demonstration - Blue to Pink Color Change

Dymax adhesives formulated with patented See-Cure Technology are bright blue in the uncured state. The blue color is easily visible against clear and most colored substrates, enabling simple confirmation of the quantity and location of placement. As the adhesive begins to cure, its blue color begins to fade and ultimately turns clear after full cure. See-Cure adhesives are specifically formulated to ensure that this visually obvious blue-to-clear color change occurs only after the adhesive reaches full cure. This serves as a visible confirmation that the adhesive has received a sufficient dose of energy to reach full cure. See-Cure technology that transitions the adhesive from blue to pink is also available. These products are ideal for applications in which post-cure confirmation of adhesive cure and placement is critical.
