Bostik Born2Bond™ Fast Curing UV Gasket (UV-CIPG)
The Bostik Born2Bond™ UV Cure-In-Place Gasket (UV-CIPG) range is a revolutionary gasketing system, commonly used in applications that require a fast, cost effective and state of the art solution, such as in the electronic and automotive manufacturing sectors.
UV-CIPG adhesives can be easily applied with an automatic dispensing device that can be programmed to follow a specific application area. This method of application saves many hours of preparation and application of the sealant to a product’s casing, 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 meet the detailed and precise bonding requirements demanded by modern industry.
Bostik Born2Bond™ UV-CIPG Solutions: How does it work?
For water and dust protection applications, moulded and cut gaskets are widely used. These gaskets are usually assembled by hand. However, moulded gaskets are labour intensive.
- High labour requirements
- High labour costs
- High waste rate
- Cost of the mould
Bostik Born2Bond™ UV-CIPG has been developed to meet the demands of modern manufacturing processes: high efficiency, automated processes, complex designs, small size, light weight, less waste and protection from water and dust.
With products that offer excellent elasticity and ease of processing, as well as exceptional quality, durability and strength, Born2Bond™ UV-CIPG is emerging as a leading choice for industry players.
