Masks

Panacol-USA UV light curable masking products are easily applied and cured (hardened) in seconds with a UV light source. A single coat provides consistent protection from high impact particulate, hot acids, alkali solutions, plating, etc. These UV masking materials are available in many viscosities to accommodate the wide variety of applications. Removal is accomplished by simple peel, hot water dip and peel, or through incineration. Components are residue-free after removal of the UV mask.

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.
