Light-Cured Adhesives Accommodate Any Assembly Schedule

Versatile Tru-Bond 18400 Series light-cured pressure-sensitive adhesives provide excellent hold on metals, glass, ceramics, and plastics, including difficult-to-bond materials such as polyethylene and polypropylene panels. Available in liquid and gel formulations, they provide unlimited open time after application, since parts coated with cured adhesive can be bonded immediately or stored for assembly later. Solvent-free, the adhesives can be applied in a wide range of film thicknesses or bead widths either by hand or with automated dispensing equipment, including roll-coaters, valve-dispensers, sprayers, or screen-printers. Once exposed to a dose of ultraviolet (UV) light (even through previously assembled clear or translucent substrates), the adhesives cure instantly to an optically clear, non-yellowing finish.
