Light-Curable Adhesives and Coatings for Automotive Parts Assembly

UV/Visible automotive adhesive and coatings for automotive parts assembly lower total manufacturing costs and make better parts. Dymax UV/Visible curable automotive adhesives and coatings produce more durable electronics, trim components, brighter headlamps, superior sound systems, stronger glass assemblies, and quieter motors.

100% solvent-free UV/Visible curing resins cure in seconds upon exposure to UV/Visible light, activator, or heat, and these automotive adhesives and coatings are designed to be integrated into assembly lines to make automation easier. Replace time-consuming off-line operations and adhesives with long cure times that are difficult to dispense, control and maintain. Eliminate processes that consume space, produce rejects or require expensive venting and safe handling procedures.
