Light-Cure Encapsulants and Positioning Adhesives for Reliable ADAS Sensors
Light-curable encapsulants and positioning adhesives protect sensors in Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) from harsh environments. Once considered high-end luxuries, ADAS are becoming standard features on most vehicles. These systems enhance driver safety by delivering notifications and warnings of impending dangers so that drivers may avoid them. Today’s vehicles use a mix of camera, radar/lidar, and ultrasonic sensor technology to make features like blind spot detection, cross traffic alerts, and parking assistance possible.
Dymax encapsulants cure in seconds upon exposure to UV/Visible light, cutting down on processing time and reducing work in progress. The materials are all one part, so no mixing is required and viscosity is consistent. They display very low movement with temperature variations and excellent resistance to humidity and thermal shock. Encapsulants with secondary heat cure for shadow areas are available, as well as UL-V0 (flammability) rated and fluorescing grades.
In addition, Dymax carries positioning adhesives for alignment of ADAS cameras and sensors.
