Height-LED UVLED curing machine manufacturers talk about the difference between UVLED light curing and thermal curingClick  Publish Time:2022-06-11
UVLED light curing and thermal curing, as the two mainstream curing methods, are often used for comparison. These two curing methods have their own advantages and disadvantages, and it is impossible to generalize which method is better. As a manufacturer of UVLED light curing machine, Height-LED will also discuss the characteristics of UVLED light curing and thermal curing with you today, and see which curing method is more suitable for you.
The difference between UVLED light curing and thermal curing:
UVLED light curing is generally free radical curing, and the cured material generates free radical initiators under UV light irradiation. Thermal curing refers to heating or curing two or more substances in a system at a certain temperature for chemical use and then curing.
In terms of curing effect, UVLED light curing has good physical properties, and the glue has high transparency and strong adhesion after curing. Due to the fast curing speed (measured in seconds), it is very suitable for the application of automated production lines, effectively increasing the production capacity. The thermally cured adhesive has good flexibility and adhesion.
When choosing a curing method, it should be selected according to the curing material and actual production needs. The curing mechanism is different, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. UVLED light curing has low energy consumption and fast speed. The downside is that shadow opaque areas cannot be cured. Thermal curing has good applicability, but the curing speed is slow, the energy consumption is high, and the process is complicated.
