UV & LED curing adhesive from Intertronics bonds glass to glass and glass to metal
Dymax Ultra Light-Weld® 431 from adhesives specialists Intertronics is a versatile glass-to-glass and glass-to-metal bonding adhesive that is formulated to be resistant to high-temperature and high-moisture environments while maintaining superior adhesion and flexibility. Dymax 431 bonds rapidly upon exposure to UV/Visible light for immediate use in the assembly process, making it highly suitable for assembly applications such as furniture, container glass and lighting and appliance sub-assemblies.
Explained Intertronics M.D. Peter Swanson, “Dymax 431 cures in seconds with conventional UV curing lamps, but also cures with LED-based UV curing lamps, like our BlueWave LED Prime. This adhesive was specifically designed with low shrinkage, which results in reduced stress on the bond line or larger cured surfaces.”
Dymax 431 offers a high degree of adhesion to glass and metal with the flexibility required for shock resistance. It is therefore considered ideal for assembly applications in the glass, appliance and lighting manufacturing industries where it enables rapid bonding of glass and metal (stainless steel, aluminium, brass and copper) and can also be considered for bonding a wide variety of plastics such as ABS, CAP, PA, PC, PCTG, PEBA, PEEK, PET, PETG, PI, PVC and SAN, as well as ceramic and FR4.
