Dymax launches UV curing adhesive for electric vehicle batteries

Dymax Ultra Light-Weld 9501-F is a UV/visible light-curing adhesive optimized for LED curing at 385nm wavelength designed for electric vehicle battery potting and bonding.

This material is described as providing a highly reliable bond for cylindrical cells to the base of the battery pack. This colourless adhesive contains no non-reactive solvents and will fluoresce blue upon exposure to low intensity 365nm blacklight for inspection. Its ability to cure in seconds enables faster processing, greater output, and lower processing costs, according to Dymax.

This light curable adhesive offers thermal shock resistance and retains strength under high temperature and high humidity environments, according to the company. 9501-F is suitable for EV battery potting and structural bonding applications with excellent adhesion to metal and plastic substrates. This includes nickel plated metals, aluminum, ABS, PC and PC/ABS blends.

Dymax also offers light-curing spot lamps, focused-beam lamps, or flood lamps for use with this and other adhesives.

Nominal viscosity is 10,000cP.
