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.
