UV Process Supply has introduced the CON-TROL-CURE Thin Film Calorimeter (TFC-9000). It measures the curability of inks, coatings and adhesives to ensure that curing is consistently batch-to-batch. The company says it identified a need to accurately measure curing effectiveness when using different UV LED wavelengths, so it developed a procedure using the TFC-9000 to quantitatively evaluate the curing of polymers with UV LED. The time to peak (cure rate) can be measured. The TFC-9000 can also create a profile of the adhesive itself.
