Dymax offers new encompass technology.

Dymax adhesives formulated with new Encompass technology incorporate the company's See-Cure color-change and Ultra-Red fluorescing technologies into one light-curable product. As a result, manufacturers gain efficiencies from rapid, on-demand curing with easy cure confirmation and post-cure bond-line inspection.

While in an uncured state, an adhesive formulated with See-Cure technology is blue in color for easy verification of placement. As the product cures with sufficient exposure to UV light, its blue color transitions to colorless and provides obvious visual confirmation that the adhesive is fully cured and the bond site secure.

Products formulated with Ultra-Red technology fluoresce bright red under low-intensity black light (365 nm), contrasting well on plastics that naturally fluoresce blue in color (like PVC). This allows manufacturers to incorporate automated or manual quality inspection to verify complete and accurate placement of the adhesive after cure. Dymax is currently offering several medical-grade adhesives that are formulated with the new Encompass technology.
