    Masking Aerospace/Turbine Components for Surface Cleaning and Finishing Operations

    UV curable masking products are easily applied and cured in seconds with a UV light source. A single application provides consistent protection from blasting, hot acids, alkali solutions, plating, etc. Masking materials in multiple viscosities to accommodate a wide variety of applications. Removal ranges from simple peel to incineration or heat treating for applications with more severe surface protection requirements.

     
  • Orthopedic Prostheses Masks

    Orthopedic Prostheses Masks

    Orthopedic prostheses such as hip joints, knees, bone plates, and spinal implants contain both highly polished surfaces and rough, coated surfaces. Tangent UV light curable masking materials can provide absolute protection and delineation between these surfaces. Tangent UV masks are designed for removal by manual peel, which can be accelerated by incorporating a quick hot water dip/rinse prior to peel.
