Bestech Australia announces the introduction of the new UVSCALE UV light amount distribution measurement film by Fujifilm.
Available for use in production processes that use UV lights such as attachment of touch panels and sterilisation of food package materials, Fujifilm’s new UVSCALE light amount distribution measurement film visualises light amount distribution of UV lights using colour density of the film.
Bestech Australia also markets and sells Fujifilm’s PRESCALE and THERMOSCALE products.
Fujifilm’s UVSCALE visualises light amount distribution of a broad range of UV lights of 4-6,000mJ/cm² using the colour optical density of the film.
UV lights are used in production scenarios such as in the curing process of optical resin for attaching a touch panel onto an LCD panel and the sterilisation process of food package materials.
Developed using Fujifilm's accumulation of microcapsule technology and colour-control technology, the new UVSCALE technology has overcome the limitation of using the traditional illuminometer that can only measure the amount of single point UV light.
With the colour optical density changing according to the accumulated amount of UV light, the UVSCALE enables the user to visually examine if the entire surface of the subject is equally irradiated with UV light.
Compared to an illuminometer, UVSCALE drastically shortens inspection time, thereby improving work efficiency. Additionally, the flexible, thin film can be cut into a desired shape or length and simply be placed on the static or moving subject to measure UV light distribution, allowing the amount of UV light even on curved areas to now be measured.
UVSCALE can additionally be used for stiffening UV printing ink and coating agents to prevent reflection and damage.
