Low-viscosity adhesive cures with UV and visible light
26 September 2015
Techsil's Vitralit UV 4050 LV is a new transparent adhesive with ultra low-viscosity for bonding plastics, glass and metals.
Vitralit UV 4050 LV acrylate adhesive is a development of the German adhesive manufacturer, Panacol and is being launched into the UK market by Techsil.
The new adhesive has extremely low viscosity and is a suitable choice for very tight bond gaps. It provides good adhesion to most plastics like PC, PVC, PS, ABS, SAN, as well as to metals like stainless steel, steel or aluminium and glass.
If at least one assembly material is transparent, Vitralit UV 4050 LV will cure very quickly to produce a strong and reliable bond. The ability to cure with visible light (>400nm) permits the bonding of transparent materials which have low UV transmission like polycarbonate.
The adhesive is suitable for use in the medical devices sector and is currently being tested according to USP Class VI and DIN ISO 10993-4/-5 standards for use in medical applications.
Both gas discharge lamps and LEDs are suitable to use for curing; in particular, high intensity gallium doped gas discharge lamps produce excellent curing results.
