Panacol has developed a new range removable masking materials: Vitralit® MASK are new UV-curable masking products for industrial processes that serve to temporarily protect components for further processing. These masks can be easily applied, cured in seconds under UV light, and then removed by simply peeling them off or, for masks with higher adhesion, by immersing them in hot water and peeling them off or burning them off.
UV mask material is typically used in high value component fabrication that involves processes for surface enhancement. These processes may include acid cleaning, grit blasting, or shot peening. Component surfaces or internal cavities may need to be insulated from these processes. Masking materials are applied as temporary barriers, that are subsequently removed from the completed component after processing. Typical applications include the manufacture and repair of turbine components, orthopedic devices or prosthesis, and other industrial component processes such as the coating of circuit boards and plastics.
These products are a very effective alternative to the older shields, tapes or waxes that are being used for masking components. They offer the advantage of being very easy to apply and are ideally suited for automation. They can be easily removed and they leave no residue on the surface once removed.
They are ideal solutions for the following industries.
Orthopedic implant manufacturing
Where they are ideally suited to temporary masking of parts for polishing and coating process and for packaging.
Aerospace and turbine repair and reconditioning
Where they are ideal for air flow testing, acid stripping, Air Plasma/HVOF, plating processes, grit blasting, or shot peening.
Where they are ideal for temporary masking of circuit board components.
