The Bostik Born2Bond™ UV Cure-In-Place Gasket (UV-CIPG) range is a revolutionary gasket system, commonly used in applications that require a fast, cost effective and cutting edge solution such as in electronics manufacturing and automotive sectors.
The UV-CIPG adhesives can be easily applied with an automated dispenser which can be programmed to follow a specific application area. This method of application can save many hours of preparation and applying the gasket onto a product housing, and also helps to reduce the volume of materials used. The gasket is cured immediately during application using UV light.
The Born2Bond™ UV-CIPG range is Bostik’s latest innovation in engineering adhesives and has been designed to address the detailed and precise bonding requirements demanded by modern industry.
Bostik Born2Bond™ UV-CIPG Solutions: How does it work?
For water and dust proofing applications, moulded and cut gaskets are widely used. These gaskets are typically assembled by hand. However, moulded gaskets are labour intensive.
- Labour intensive
- High labour cost
- High defect rate
- Mould cost
Bostik Born2Bond™ UV-CIPG has been developed to meet the demands of modern manufacturing processes: high efficiency, automated processes, complex designs, smaller size, lightweight, less waste, and water/dust proof.
With products that offer excellent elasticity and easy dispensability, along with exceptional quality, durability and strength, Born2Bond™ UV-CIPG is emerging as a top choice for industry players.
