„We decided to develop a contactless technology, which means that we have no connection between the print head and the component during the dosing process of the single droplets.“ explains the project manager Dr. Bernd Pachaly and continues „This brings significant advantages that allow both high precision and freedom in design.”
The Chemical Reaction Inside: Hydrosilylation using UV-light
Silicone rubber must be vulcanized to transform it into elastomeric materials. The chemical process behind the ACEO® technology is based on platinum-catalyzed addition curing. During the curing process, the crosslinker’s Si-H groups react with the vinyl groups of the polymer to form a three-dimensional network. The result is a 100% silicone. The advantage is that no byproducts are released, as a result the silicone rubber cures without shrinkage and without releasing substances.
