Fast curing time make adhesive more adaptable

The Vitralit range of UV curing adhesives available from Eurobond Adhesives covers a multitude of different applications in electrical engineering and electronics, potting and smart card applications.

The product also finds uses in dome coating, wire tacking and glass bonding for medical device manufacture as well as plastics bonding and optical and opto-electronic applications.

Depending on the application curing times of 0.5 to 60 seconds can be achieved through exposure to high energy UV light. Obviously this shortens cycle times in mass production and makes for a much more efficient manufacturing process. Many products in the range are solvent free, therefore inherently environmentally safe.

There is no mixing required and no pot life to worry about and, due to short curing times, the system uses minimal energy. The adhesives have good electrical properties with superior temperature and chemical resistance. The short UV exposure time allows bonding of temperature sensitive materials. And with their low space requirement, Vitralit systems are ideal even for complex fully-automated high volume production lines and can be integrated in existing plants, the company claims.
