NEXT GENERATION LOCTITE® INDIGO™ VISIBLE LIGHT CURE ADHESIVES

Henkel Corporation has introduced the next generation of Loctite® Indigo™ Visible Light Cure Adhesives formulated for improved performance in a broad array of bonding, potting and assembly applications.

Henkel Corporation has introduced the next generation of Loctite® Indigo™ Visible Light Cure Adhesives formulated for improved performance in a broad array of bonding, potting and assembly applications.

The three products now featured in the line – low viscosity Loctite® Indigo™ 3554™, medium viscosity Loctite® Indigo™ 3555™, and high viscosity Loctite® Indigo™ 3556™ Visible Light Cure Adhesives – have little or no color for improved aesthetics, and offer improved adhesion to plastics and metals (including polycarbonate, ABS and stainless steel), excellent surface cure, and improved heat/humidity resistance.  Designed to cure in seconds upon exposure to light in the visible spectrum, these products cure safely, efficiently, and immediately.

Loctite® Indigo™ Visible Light Cure Adhesives can bond colored plastic assemblies such as eyewear, appliances, jewelry, cosmetic cases and electric lighting.  The products offer long-term performance on electrical connectors and speaker assemblies.  As they are designed for use on UV-blocking clear and select colored substrates including translucent variations of blue, purple, gray, white and green, these adhesives offer excellent results in medical applications such as needle bonding and pre-filled syringe assembly.  All products are ISO 10993 biological tested, and fluoresce under black light for easy quality control inspection. These adhesives can also be used for potting applications that require rapid cure to depths in excess of 13 mm. 

Loctite® Indigo™ Visible Light Cure Adhesives perform optimally when cured with the Loctite® Indigo™ CureJet™ LED system that emits no UV light and requires no venting or specialized protective equipment to ensure worker safety. This system provides consistent performance, long-term reliability, and lower overall operating/maintenance costs.  Additional LED based visible light systems are also offered.
