Epoxy Adhesive

FlashSet™ UV-5608DC epoxy adhesive from EpoxySet, Woonsocket, RI, can be activated by 405-nm light with an intensity of about 150 mW/cm2 for 5-10 seconds. Parts are mated together and aligned within 45-60 seconds of activation. The adhesive will yield green strength after 30 minutes for handling; full cure occurs over the next 16 hours. The medium-viscosity epoxy produces a high-strength bond with low cure shrinkage and a glass transition temperature of over 80 °C.
