Ultra-violet cure

UV10FL-1 is described by Master Bond as an ultra-violet cure adhesive with high strength and the ability to cure in thick sections.

"The bond strength is equal to or exceeds that obtained from room-temperature curing epoxy compositions", reports Rachel Ruchama, Master Bond. It has a tensile strength of 2850lb/in² and a tensile modulus of 154,000lb/in² but "remains flexible with elongation at break of 43%".

Other benefits detailed by the company include heat resistance to 150ºC and the fact that the product does not require complete cure by the ultra-violet source since polymerisation continues after exposure. High bond strength is stated to be obtained with metals, ceramics, glass, and many plastics and elastomers.
