Convenient syringe applicators

Usage and Handling:

Remove orange protective tip cap from the black syringe body by turning counterclockwise. Save this cap to reseal a partially used syringe after use.

Attach the dispensing nozzle by pressing the plastic end onto the dispensing end to the syringe body and turning clockwise until firmly seated.

Note: Adhesive is light sensitive and will thicken or gel at the end of the dispensing tip if exposed to sunlight and or fluorescent and incandescent lights for prolonged periods of time. If thickening or soft gelation occurs at the dispensing tip simply extrude fresh adhesive through the tip to clear nozzle. If adhesive becomes firmly gelled, then replace the nozzle tip.

 

Store sealed syringes @ 60 - 85F.

Preparation Procedures:

  1. Parts to be repaired should be fully UV postcured prior to handling. Follow UV chamber manufacturer's recommended exposure times for the size of parts to be cured.
  2. Lightly touch sand the mating surfaces of the parts to be joined with 150-220 grit sandpaper to just remove the gloss.
  3. Wipe clean the part surface with 99+% isopropyl alcohol (IPA) or methyl ethyl ketone (MEK). Make sure surface is dry prior to application of adhesive.

 

Application / Repair Procedures:

 

For fine cracks / fractures

  1. Place part on a flat surface and align cracked surfaces.
  2. Carefully dispense UVIBOND SL-Lo along bondline surface.
  3. Allow adhesive to penetrate into bondline.
  4. Apply UV light source to cure adhesive.
  5. If necessary, turn part over and repeat steps 2, 3 and 4 to completely fill fracture / crack.

 

Joining parts and / or breakage repair

  1. Carefully dispense a small amount of UVIBOND SL-HI to tack down the corner / edges of the parts to be joined.
  2. Apply firm pressure to join parts, allowing excess adhesive to extrude from bondline. Wipe off excess adhesive prior to exposure to UV light to minimize amount of rough sanding needed after cure of adhesive.
  3. Apply UV light to cure tacking adhesive.
  4. Carefully dispense UVIBOND SL-LO along the length of the bondline.
  5. Allow adhesive to penetrate into bondline.
  6. Apply UV light source to cure adhesive.
  7. If necessary, turn part over and repeat steps 4, 5, & 6 to completely fill bondline.
  8. Fill remaining seam with UVIBOND SL-HI and screet down excess until surface is smooth.
  9. Cure adhesive with UV light.

 

Cure Time Guidelines:

For a 1/8" diameter drop of adhesive the cure time is approximately 3-5 seconds using an EFOS 100SS Plus light wand at full power fixed directly over the drop at a distance of 1/8" above the drop.

Note: This is a guideline only and the user must determine the duration of UV exposure based on light source used, age of the bulb, amount of adhesive, and depth of cure.

Safety and First Aid:

UVIBOND SL-LO/HI and UVIFILL TX are blends of acylated monomers and oligomers, which is generally considered safe for use. None of the ingredients used are suspected as known carcinogens. As with all chemicals, use the systems in well-ventilated areas and avoid breathing vapors. In case of eye contact, flush with fresh clean water for at least 15 minutes, for skin contact, wash thoroughly with soap and water. If swallowed, drink at least one pint of water and call physician. Refer to Material Safety Sheet for more details.

TECHNICAL DATA & INFORMATION

UVIFORM ™ SL SLS / SLA RAPID UV CURE REPAIR / FILLING SYSTEM IN MATCHING WHITE COLOR

Stereolithography Rapid Repair Non-Flow Forming, Shaping and Filling Compound

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Ultra-fast UV system designed exclusively for stereolithography /stereo laser operations

Easily sandable / machineable for shape forming applications

For filling drain holes in Quick Cast style and fills larger cavities/defects in Solid-build style

After UV, releases easily from material transfer substrate but adheres well to epoxy part

Non flow consistency to hang on contoured/vertical surfaces in convenient syringe applicators

USAGE AND HANDLING

  • Remove protective orange tip cap from the black syringe body by turning counterclockwise. Adhesive is now ready to dispense. Save this cap to reseal a partially used syringe after use. Store sealed syringes @ 60 ° - 85 ° F.

Note: Adhesive is light sensitive and will thicken or gel at the end of the dispensing tip if exposed to sunlight and or fluorescent and incandescent lights for prolonged periods of time. If thickening or soft gelation occurs at the dispensing tip simply extrude fresh adhesive through the tip to clear nozzle. If adhesive, becomes firmly gelled, then replace the nozzle tip.

PREPARATION PROCEDURES

  • Parts to be repaired should be fully UV postcured prior to handling. Follow UV chamber manufacturer's recommended exposure times for the size of parts to be cured.
  • Lightly touch sand the mating surfaces of the parts to be joined with 150-220 grit sandpaper.
  • Wipe clean the part surface with 99+% isopropyl alcohol (IPA) or methyl ethyl Ketone (MEK). Make sure surface is dry prior to application.

APPLICATION/FILLING PROCEDURES

For general filling, contouring, minor sculpting

a. Apply UVIFORM-SL directly to the part, wipe away excess material with IPA or MEK.

  • Use a clean smooth spatula or troweling tool to smooth out the compound, wipe away excess material with IPA or MEK prior to curing.
  • Dip spatula in IPA or MEK and smooth out the surface as needed.
  • Apply UV light source to cure.
  • For deep areas repeat process to build up area to desired height.

CURE TIME GUIDELINES

For a ⅛" diameter bead of UVIFORM-SL the cure time is approximately 10-30 seconds using a Spectrum 60 light wand (or equivalent) at full power fixed directly over the drop at a distance of ⅛" above the bead.

NOTE: This is a guideline only and user must determine duration of UV exposure based on light source used, age of bulb, amount of forming compound, and depth of cure.

SAFETY AND FIRST AID

UVIFORM-SL is a blend of acrylated monomers and oligomers which are generally considered safe for use. No ingredients used are suspected or known carcinogens. As with all chemicals use these systems in well ventilated area and avoid breathing vapors. In case of eye contact, flush with fresh clean water for at least 15 minutes; for skin contact, wash thoroughly with soap and water. If swallowed, drink at least one pint of water and call physician.
