DYMAX CORP.: Bonding Adhesive

January 14, 2011

This company has released a new adhesive featuring a built-in cure indicator for appliance assembly and other industrial plastic-bonding applications. 3225-T-SC is a versatile, plastic-bonding adhesive formulated with DYMAX’s patented See-Cure technology. The material is designed for rapid bonding, laminating and sealing of most plastics, including PMMA (acrylic), PC, PVC, ABS, PA, PU, SAN, TPU, and aluminum. It can also be considered for bonding glass, stainless steel and brass substrates in combination with plastic substrates.

3225-T-SC is colored bright blue in the uncured state. The adhesive’s high visibility enables automated vision systems to confirm adhesive placement prior to the cure. During the curing process, the blue color of the adhesive transitions to clear and provides an obvious, visual confirmation that a full cure has been achieved. The adhesive is designed to cure tack free and clear in appearance after exposure to DYMAX broad-spectrum curing equipment.
