Dymax Corp.’s SpeedMask 726-SC is a UV/visible light-curable masking resin formulated to protect turbine engine components, orthopaedic implants and metal components during plating, plasma spray, blasting, anodizing and powder-coating processes.
Formulated with the company’s See-Cure technology, SpeedMask 726-SC starts out bright blue in an uncured state, making it easy to see and enabling confirmation of quantity and placement. The blue transitions to pink upon exposure to sufficient light energy, indicating cure has been achieved. The mask also can remain flexible at temperature processes as high as 204°C.
SpeedMask 726-SC can be applied by spraying, dipping, or coating and can be easily integrated into automated systems. Its ability to cure quickly and be easily removed helps lower processing costs and increase throughput, the company says.
