Abstract

UV light curing of adhesives has become the method of choice for many more industrial bonding, sealing, coating, potting and tacking applications. Because faster cures provide more efficient manufacturing processes and lower total assembly cost, and because light curing adhesives are being used in more kinds of applications, both the range of resins and curing equipment now available has expanded dramatically. Outlines the performances of currently available UV adhesives, their application and selection of UV light sources.
