Light-Curing Industrial Adhesives for Rapid, “On Demand” Cures

UV adhesives cure in seconds upon exposure to UV/Visible light, heat, or activator for fast assembly of industrial glass, metal, and plastic components. Dymax products bond to a wide range of substrates making them exceptional for assembling dissimilar materials, something that cannot be done with traditional welding methods and other types of adhesives. Light-cure adhesives not only cure in seconds upon exposure to light energy, but their exceptional strength makes them an ideal choice to replace other types of slower, older joining technologies such as epoxies and metal fasteners.

Some of the reasons that manufacturers use industrial adhesives in their assembly process include:

  • Fast, “on demand” light cure allows parts to be immediately handled and moved onto the next step in the assembly process, reducing work in progress
  • The 100% cure nature of Dymax one-component, solvent-free, low VOC formulations, eliminates the costs associated with hazardous waste disposal
  • Cutting-edge light-cure technologies is some formulations, such as fluorescing for quality inspection and heat cure for shadow areas, speeds up the manufacturing process leading to increased throughput and fewer part rejects
  • The high-strength, environmentally-resistant bonds of UV adhesives can withstand harsh environments that many finished parts are exposed to

Products are available for bonding glass, metal, and plastic components found in a variety of applications such as:

  • Choke and Transformer Bonding
  • DC Motor Assembly
  • Alternator and Flywheel Applications
  • Appliance Assembly
  • Magnet Bonding
  • Automotive Sub-Assemblies
  • Ruggedizing Plastic Housings
  • Bonding High-End Glass Displays
  • Jewelry Manufacturing
  • Aerospace Vibration Dampening
  • Glass Headlamp Assembly

Dymax RoHS compliant light-cure materials are available in Light Weld® (UV light cure), Ultra Light-Weld (UV/Visible light cure), and Multi-Cure® (UV/Visible, activator, or heat cure) formulations to suit a wide range of industrial bonding applications. The adhesives are utilized throughout the appliance, automotive, and aerospace markets, as well as the glass-bonding industry.
