Grahic Jump Location
Spot-cure methods: (a) UV-cured adhesives, (b) thermally cured adhesives
Grahic Jump Location
Drop-shape analysis method
Grahic Jump Location
Profile of the sessile drop before and after cure. The distance between each pixel is 10–20 μm.
Grahic Jump Location
The volumetric shrinkage of a filled acrylic material cured using UV- light at different intensities. In each case the duration of the exposure was varied in order to apply the same total energy of UV-light.
