Dymax: optical adhesives

August 29, 2000
This company offers optically clear, low-stress, low-odor, high-tensile-strength adhesives designed to minimize stress in optical assemblies. A new, opto-mechanical selector guide features UV/visible light-curing adhesives for bonding a variety of applications, including mounting lenses, bonding doublets or prisms, fiber-optic splicing, eyeglass lamination, or precision positioning. The adhesives are designed to cure when exposed to low- to medium-intensity UV and visible light in the 300-nm to 500-nm range. They do not need a post cure to achieve full strength like other optical adhesives.
