Intertronics is announcing a resilient, low-viscosity, moisture-resistant adhesive designed for rapid bonding to a wide variety of plastic and metal substrates. DYMAX Ultra Light-Weld 3013 forms high-strength, environmentally resistant bonds for appliance assembly, bond joint and sealing, plastic window bonding, and plastic assembly, and dispenses easily for precise quantity and placement of adhesive.
Intertronics Managing Director Peter Swanson explains: "This is a really useful and easy-to-use adhesive which not only speeds production cycles, but also fluoresces blue under low-intensity UV "˜black' light (365 nm), allowing for in-line quality control utilising optical scanners." This solvent-free, worker-friendly adhesive cures in seconds upon exposure to ultraviolet and visible light - even through UV-blocked plastics - allowing for increased production speed and lower processing costs.
Ultra Light-Weld 3013 is suitable for applications requiring the bonding of dissimilar materials, something that cannot be done with traditional welding methods and other types of adhesives. Substrates suitable for bonding with 3013 include transparent or translucent acrylic, metal, polycarbonate, PVC alloys, ABS, polyurethane and polystyrene, as are found in production of white goods, automotive assemblies, domestic equipment etc. For further information about DYMAX Ultra Light-Weld 3013 please see www.intertronics.co.uk or visit their blog at www.adhere.uk.com.
