UV cure adhesives and sealants are available in both epoxy and acrylate formulations, forming strong and reliable bonds when exposed to a light source after application. High transparency and exceptional stability, even in challenging environmental conditions, ensure that they are a reliable choice for manufacturers in applications using plastics, rubbers, ceramics, glass, and metal substrates. Additionally, they are optimally used wherever the precision assembly of components is required thanks to on-demand curing and setting.
Used across a broad range of industries for their fast cure times and efficient application, on-demand curing delivers greater control during manufacturing processes. Additionally, with reliable adhesion and sealing in colorless to near-colorless curing, manufacturers can assemble consumer goods to meet high aesthetic standards as well as meeting various levels of compliance in the medical industry.
A choice of photoinitiators allows you to tailor your UV cure adhesive to materials that only transmit visible light or only transmit UV light. This ensures you can easily bond all types of substrate in any application. It is simply a matter of choosing the right UV adhesive for your purposes.
Light cure adhesives and sealants are selected over other methods of bonding and adhesion for a variety of reasons. Cure times are important in processes that require a high degree of accuracy, such as applications within the medical, optical, and electronics industries. Additionally, any component that requires high stability while retaining flexibility can benefit from the products within the Henkel catalogue.
