UV/Visible Light Curing Plastic Bonding Adhesives

High-Strength, Environmentally Resistant Bonds to Plastics

UV/Visible Light Curing Plastic Bonding Adhesives

UV light curing plastic adhesives cure in seconds upon exposure to ultraviolet light and/or visible light, even through UV blocked plastics. A solvent-free, worker-friendly plastic adhesive from Dymax, forms high-strengh, environmentally resistant bonds to plastics and other substrates, including polycarbonate, PVC, phenolic, acrylic, metal, glass and ceramic. Because plastic adhesives bond so many different substrates, they are exceptional adhesives for bonding dissimilar materials, something that cannot be done with traditional welding methods and other types of adhesives. Typical UV plastic adhesive applications include display case construction, automotive headlamp assembly, novelty bonding, sign assembly, adhering light fixtures and awards and plastic package assembly

Typical plastic adhesive applications include appliance assembly, automotive sub-assemblies, headlamp assembly, plastic component tacking and sealing, potting, fixturing and ruggedizing plastic housings, high-end displays and jewelry manufacturing, cosmetic household items, and aerospace vibration dampening. These plastic adhesives cure rapidly for high-speed production using either broad spectrum bulb technology or visible light LED technology.
