High-intensity ultraviolet curing system
Glass Technology, Durango, Colo., introduced the Blue Wave high-intensity ultraviolet curing system to ensure proper cross-linking and cross-hatching, and provide a stronger cure and bond. The light-emitting diodes surround the damage being repaired, producing the correct UV wavelength needed to cause resin molecule stimulation and curing, according to a release.
Unlike traditional low-intensity UV bulb-curing methods, this curing system gives the technician complete control over when to cure the repair; the injector does not need to be removed, so exposed air cannot re-enter the pit area to cause air pockets. The system is engineered so the technician can maintain physical and visual contact with the repair area.
The eco-friendly Blue Wave system is portable and does not require an external power source. It will cure up to 15,000 repairs before any UV light maintenance is required, according to the release.
