Spectronics Corp. (Westbury, N.Y.) has developed a portable UV lamp, the MAXIMA ML-3500C, to cure adhesives, epoxies, resins, printed circuit boards, plastics and coatings. The lamp produces a nominal steady-state UV-A intensity of 90,000 µW/cm² at 6 inches/15 cm. The lamp features Micro Discharge Light (MDL) technology and a filter and bulb/reflector assembly that enables the lamp’s 35W bulb to deliver up to 10 times more UV-A energy than conventional 100W UV curing lamps. The system reportedly produces virtually no hazardous UV-B light, and the bulb can be replaced without tools or risk of shock. A battery-operated model includes a 12V, 7-amp/hr rechargeable battery that powers the lamp for two hours.
