Electronic Materials: UV-Curable Epoxies

September 11, 2000
This company introduces the OPTOCAST family, its newest line of UV-curable epoxy products. These epoxies have been specifically designed for uses in opto-electronic manufacturing. All of the epoxies are single-component adhesives that require no mixing prior to use. They cure quickly upon exposure to UV light and exhibit low outgassing. All of the OPTOCAST epoxies feature extremely low levels of shrinkage upon cure, which is critical for the alignment of fiber optics and associated components.
