Henkel has launched a new dual-cure adhesive specifically designed for bonding applications in automotive ADAS cameras and LiDAR modules. Using a unique UV cationic thermal dual-cure epoxy, Loctite Ablestik NCA 3218 offers a solution for applications such as lens barrel-to-housing and lens housing-to-circuit board bonding. Loctite Ablestik NCA 3218 has been created to meet global product safety standards and is CMR, SVHC, antimony free, and REACH compliant.

Loctite Ablestik NCA 3218 is a dispensable, one-component dual-cure non-conductive adhesive. Due to its high glass transition temperature (Tg), the interface is less stressed, offering excellent adhesion to PCB, various plastics (PBT, PPS), and aluminum substrates. It has a low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE), with a low and consistent cure shrinkage that minimizes size change once cured. Loctite Ablestik NCA 3218 enables long-term robust and reliable performance throughout the entire lifetime of ADAS sensors. Its gray color is also ideal for optical applications, as it ensures optimal blocking to prevent unintentional light penetration, providing additional quality assurance for the sensor.
