Fast cures provide optimized productivity in automated and hand assembly processes. Additionally, DYMAX glass bonders do not cure until exposed to light to allow for precise positioning prior to bonding. Even under intensities as low as 10 mW/cm2 many of these adhesives are capable of full cures in as little as 30 seconds. They may even be cured using "black light".
Viscosities from moderate to non-flowing gels are available for easy dispensing. The products are 100% solvent-free, worker friendly and do not bond skin.
