Impact and Fracture-Resistant Instant Adhesives Cure in Seconds Upon Exposure to Light
Featuring extremely fast light cure speeds and a secondary moisture-cure mechanism that allows the adhesives to cure thoroughly in unexposed areas, these new toughened light cure formulations adhere to a wide variety of substrates including plastics, elastomers, rubbers and metals.
Loctite® 4310™ Flashcure® Light Cure Instant Adhesive is a clear to pale green, low-viscosity formulation that fills gaps to 0.005-inches using only moisture cure and can cure to depths up to 0.5-inches on exposure to light. Loctite® 4311™ Flashcure® Light Cure Instant Adhesive is a high-viscosity, clear to pale green formulation that fills larger gaps to 0.008-inches using only moisture cure and can be cured to depths up to 0.5-inches upon exposure to light. Both adhesives withstand temperatures ranging from -65° to 180°F.
