High performance UV-curable adhesives
Highly durable, transparent when cured, and easy to manage, the Born2Bond™ UV-Acrylic LC Series can be used with metals, glass and plastics, including ABS and PMMA. Curing only happens on exposure to UV – enabling ‘cure on demand’ within the production process and supporting with increased throughput. This can be achieved within a wide range of UV wavelengths (between 365 and 405nm), resulting in safer curing processes and maximizing compatibility with existing UV curing lamps.
Born2Bond™ UV-Acrylic LC products are non-toxic, solvent-free, and can be dispensed using a wide variety of equipment and methods. Patented Nanostrength® technology developed by Bostik’s parent company, Arkema, ensures greater impact resistance and elongation properties while gap filling, low shrinkage and non-cracking properties further enhance performance. This is supported by a low exothermic reaction during formation which reduces the risk of mechanical stress that could otherwise damage the substrates.
Available in selected regions only.
Always use glasses and gloves when applying adhesives.
