TORRINGTON, CT – Dymax Corp. has been awarded two patents by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The patents cover adhesive and coating compositions.
U.S. Patent No. 9,315,695, entitled “Actinic Radiation and Moisture Dual Curable Composition,” further extends the scope of the company’s dual-cure technology. This patent is for a dual-cure liquid adhesive composition that facilitates polymerization by exposure to actinic radiation and moisture. The invented composition cures into optically clear materials with both actinic radiation and moisture. It’s ideal for electronic applications where shadow areas with reliability risk may exist.
The second U.S. patent holds number 9,340,704 and is entitled “Sunlight Curable Coating Compositions.” It was received for sunlight-curable coating compositions. The coating - derived from the invented formula - exhibits quick drying time, rapidly becoming a tack-free surface with excellent flexibility and hardness. After exposure to sunlight, the pencil hardness of the coating increases dramatically. The coating also shows very good abrasion resistance.
