Fast-cure, low-shrink adhesive for optic assembly eliminates parts movement
Article Type: New products From: Assembly Automation, Volume 31, Issue 3
New from Intertronics is a fast-cure, low-shrink adhesive for optic assembly (Figure 2) which eliminates parts movement – DYMAX OP-67-LS opto-mechanical adhesive cures in seconds for bonding of optical components, whilst its low-shrink nature virtually eliminates movement during curing and subsequent thermal cycling. OP-67-LS offers the ability to “cure on demand” with exposure to long wave UV and visible light, allowing maximum flexibility in positioning parts prior to cure. OP-67-LS features 0.2 per cent linear shrinkage upon cure.
OP-67-LS offers superior moisture resistance, very low outgassing and adhesion to a variety of substrates including metal, glass, ceramic and polycarbonate, allowing its use in many critical and demanding applications such as fibre-optic “V” groove bonding, positioning laser diodes, fibre pig tailing, transceiver potting, VCSEL positioning and mounting active devices, or passive couplers, prisms and other optical device assemblies.
