Bostik Born2Bond™ UV Cure-In-Place Gasket (UV-CIPG)

Table of Contents

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.

Moulded Gaskets

  • 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.
