Phoseon is the leader in UV LED industrial curing applications. The name Phoseon comes from the Greek word for light, phos, and the word eon, meaning an immeasurably long time. So the definition of Phoseon is long lasting light. The company’s mission is to exploit innovative light sources to solve industrial problems and enable new applications.
Today, Phoseon offers semiconductor ultra violet and infrared light sources for curing applications. Our high intensity integrated light systems cover curing applications for the printing, coating and adhesive markets. The key to Phoseon’s success is to provide “disruptive technologies”. We enable discontinuous innovation solve specific business problems.
UV curing refers to the unique way in which adhesives, coatings and inks are dried using “energy” from UV light sources rather than using heat or evaporation. If you drive a car, use a smart phone, or drink bottled water—all these objects have been “cured” using ultraviolet (UV) light.
Ultraviolet (UV) LED stands for ultraviolet light emitting diode. A UV LED is an electronic light source with electromagnetic radiation that has a wavelength shorter than that of visible light but longer than x-rays. Ultraviolet curing is the polymerization of UV sensitive materials, rather than drying through the evaporation of solvents.

In 2002, Phoseon Technology pioneered the use of LED technology for UV curing applications using the polymerization process to cure inks, coatings, adhesives and other UV sensitive materials. As the market leader, we are focused 100% on curing with LED technology. Phoseon has worldwide sales and support capabilities across regional locations.
Phoseon has the broadest portfolio of air- and water-cooled offerings. To ensure industry leading quality, reliability engineering is at our core. Our extensive reliability testing includes highly accelerated life testing, temperature, and vibration assessments to ensure products are rugged and reliable in even the harshest industrial curing environments. Phoseon products surpass 60,000 hours of lifetime.
