Products UV Curing Gel(CIPD)

Our CIPD (Cured-In-Place-Damping) silicone anti-vibration material is sold as a liquid that is cured in place with UV light. By fine-tuning softness and damping functionality (Loss Factor tanδ, etc.), our CIPD shows peerless vibration control functionality in highly sensitive precision components.

Characteristics
Tunable damping characteristics (e.g. Loss Factor tanδ) for many applications.
UV Curing Gel boasts a very low compression set, resulting in long-lasting, stable performance.
Thanks to the power of UV curing, this GEL hardens more quickly than standard moisture curing materials, reducing process time.
Often used as damping material in optical pick-ups.
Application Example
UV Curing GEL is often used as damping material in optical pick up devices. UV Curing GEL comes in liquid state.

Notes

・Requires dispensing equipment and a UV light source for curing.
・A UV lamp intensity of 100 - 300 mW/cm2 applied for 20 - 30 seconds will cure the product to a stable hardness.
・As sunlight and fluorescent lights contain UV light, any exposure to these light sources will start the curing reaction. Avoid exposure to sunlight, and apply a UV filter to any fluorescent lights in the workspace.
