AN 50752 - Monitoring the UV Cure Process of a Polymer Based Ink by FT-IR


The degree of cure of a polymer-based ink applied to a Mylar film is readily determined by FT-IR. The ink isscreened onto the Mylar film and then exposed to UV light to cure the ink. The determination of percent cure is an important quality control (QC) tool and may also be used to optimize the product manufacturing process.
