Rapid reaction monitoring of UV cured adhesives

Time Resolved difference IR spectra

Fast spectroscopic monitoring is a proven tool in R&D and production environments, where it is used to gain insight into chemical reactions. This application note showcases how the Specac High Temperature Golden Gate can be combined with ultrafast spectroscopic methods to monitor curing reactions, where it can provide invaluable insight on the performance of coatings and adhesives.

Infrared spectroscopy is in many ways an ideal measurement technique for this application as it can perform non-invasive in situ measurements that provide direct information about the structure and bonding of the sample. However, many high-performance adhesives have fast curing rates and the speed of off-the-shelf spectroscopic techniques becomes the limiting factor in the analysis.
