Alpha-Cure Automotive Components

Automotive Components

Ultraviolet technology is used in the manufacturing of automotive components.

UV curable coatings can be used to impart a variety of properties to surfaces, including glare reduction, wear or scratch resistance, anti-fogging, microbial resistance and chemical resistance.  A UV curable coating can also be applied to automotive windows  to help reduce the amount of ultraviolet radiation that passes through.

UV-curable coatings are often specified for plastic parts because the process does not require heat, which can distort the plastic shape.
