Description
DYMAX OP Optical Adhesives allow precision bonding, mounting and fixturing - they are optically clear, high strength, low stress adhesives that cure in seconds upon exposure to UV and visible light.

DYMAX OP Series UV curable optical adhesives are single component, low outgassing, low shrinkage and have a gap filling capability to 6mm or more, as well as long room-temperature shelf life. Environmentally resistant UV optical adhesive products are available as IPC-CC-830A approved conformal coatings, USP Class VI and ISO 10993 medical grade UV adhesives and Bellcore recognized wire tacking adhesives. DYMAX OP Series UV curable optical adhesives are ideal for industrial assembly applications such as lens mounting, the attachment of ceramic, glass, quartz, metal and plastic components, as well as fibre optic bonding and splicing.
