Born2Bond
Light Lock

Dual cure (light and surface curing) cyanoacrylate

Unique dual cure UV/CA with low odor and low blooming

Born2Bond Light Lock MV, HV and Gel are patented, low-odor, low-blooming, dual-curing (contact and light curing) cyanoacrylate adhesives. They are designed for bonding applications that require fast fixturing, coating or surface cure. The UV and visible-light cure sensitivity allow rapid bonding through transparent parts and quick curing of light-exposed bulk or surface-coated areas. Further, the product’s instant bonding capability ensures cure between opaque substrates (contact cure).
