Ceralink Introduces Revolutionary Rapid Lamination with FastFuse™
Troy, New York – Ceralink Inc. announces the arrival of FastFuse™ (pat. pend.), a rapid, new, energy saving process for lamination of glass and composites, using radio frequency (RF) heating technology. FastFuse™, compatible with EVA, TPU, and PVB interlayers, slashes lamination time to less than 5 minutes, reducing energy costs by 90% or more.
FastFuse™ has the ability to revolutionize the laminate manufacturing industries through lower start-up and energy costs, and faster cycle times. FastFuse™ transmits RF energy directly into the interlayer to generate heat, eliminating the need to directly heat glass layers and the surrounding enclosures, such as autoclaves or vacuum systems. The application versatility of FastFuse™ has been demonstrated for glass, plastics, and multi-material structures such as photovoltaics and transparent armor.
