CATIOWELL - CATIONIC CURING ADHESIVES
UV/Light and/or thermal curing Epoxy-based adhesives
CATIOWELL products are single-component, solvent-free, based on epoxy chemistry and cure due to a cationic reaction, which means that the curing process is initiated by radiation with UV or visible light activating photo initiators within the adhesive.
Once activated, the polymerisation process continues in the dark. Specific CATIOWELL products can also be cured with low temperatures only or in a combination of UV with heat activation.
CATIOWELL products can be characterised as follows:
Fast cure response upon UV or visible light irradiation
Pre-activation possible with certain formulations
No oxygen inhibition, tack-free surface
Secondary cure for shadow zones available
High cohesion strength, high TG, good adhesion on difficult substrates like LCP, Gold, PEEK
Mechanical properties adjustable from flexible to tough and strong
High temperature resistance, low outgassing
Low shrinkage, very good durability
High ion purity
For fast inline encapsulation, potting, sealing and bonding processes in the automotive, electronic or optoelectronic industry
Products free of Heavy-metals available
