Thermo Fisher Scientific Emphasizes Competence in UV-Curing Cells for Rheometers
Product News Aug 25, 2008
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. emphasizes its competence in UV-curing cells for rheometers by again extending this accessory range. This meets an increased industry trend to replace thermal curing by UV-assisted thermal curing processes to improve product properties or increase productivity, the Company says.
Customers now can select between three UV-measuring set-ups:
The standard version of an UV-measuring cell can be mounted onto a temperature control unit (liquid, electrical or Peltier plate) and is suitable for UV-curing materials such as inks at ambient temperature.
An UV-cell for thermal assisted curing processes at higher temperatures available for the Thermo Scientific HAAKE MARS. It is integrated into the rheometer’s Controlled Test Chamber (CTC) and covers a temperature range from -150°C to 600°C.
A customizable UV-cell with freely configurable distances for optical components such as light guides, condensers and glass plates simulates the arrangements of the optical components in the production process.
