Light Curing Instant Adhesives

LOCTITE light curing instant adhesives combine the advantages of the cure on demand UV-technology with the features of instant adhesives. This benefit is especially useful for applications where a secondary moisture cure is required, allowing the adhesive to cure completely in shadowed areas (where light cannot reach). Exposure to low intensity UV or visible light provides tack-free surfaces in less than five seconds. These adhesives eliminate the need for solvent-borne accelerators and minimise stress cracking and blooming, due to their „instant“ light fixturing.
