Lohmann Corp. has announced the expansion of its Reactive Chemistry Adhesives line with the addition of UV-LUX®, a UV-light-activated adhesive with color change. According to the company, UV-LUX is a patented, fast-acting epoxy resin that is stronger and more resilient than pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) tapes and liquid adhesives.
“UV-LUX® streamlines production while adding both strength and pliability to semi-structural bonds,” said David Nicely, business development manager. “It's tacky at room temperature and bonds quickly when exposed to UV light. As it's applied, adheres and cures, UV-LUX® changes colors, signaling its chemical progression. The adhesive is blue on room temperature application. When activated by UV light, it turns pink. Within 24 hours, the color changes to purple, indicating curing is complete.
“UV-LUX® is an ideal solution for any number of design challenges. It enables precision engineering, adds efficiency to manufacturing and assembly, is invisible with transparent materials and improves the product performance.”
