Fast, high performance plastics bonding from Intertronics

Design and production engineers requiring increased production throughput of bonded plastic assemblies should take a look at DYMAX Ultra Light-Weld® 3069 from INTERTRONICS.

The high performance, solvent-free adhesive is designed for rapid bonding and laminating of a variety of rigid and flexible plastic substrates including ABS, PVC, polycarbonate, polystyrene, polyurethane, PET, and PETG. This makes it ideal for assemblies using dissimilar plastics. It offers significant flexibility advantages over other fastening methods such as welding, mechanical fasteners and traditional adhesives – curing in seconds on exposure to UV/visible light to facilitate faster processing, increased output and lower processing costs. Curing with one of the DYMAX range of light-curing spot, focused-beam or flood lamps delivers optimum speed and performance. The bond strength of Ultra Light-Weld 3069 when used with polycarbonate and PVC generally exceeds the strength of the substrates themselves. Typical applications include flexible lamination, plastic housing assembly, appliance assembly, speaker assembly, electrical bonding and potting. Ultra Light-Weld 3069 complies with RoHS directives 2002/95/EC and 2003/11/EC and is ideal for use in industries such as electrical, appliance, automotive, electronics, industrial, medical device and metal finishing. DYMAX adhesives from INTERTRONICS optimise the speed of automated assembly, allow for 100% in-line inspection, and increase throughput. INTERTRONICS also supplies a complete range of UV light curing systems, compatible with its own and other UV light curing adhesives. UV curing spot lamps, flood lamps and conveyor systems are available in standalone configurations or can be integrated into manufacturers' existing assembly lines. These include the latest generation of LED UV systems which provide cooler cures for better thermal management, 50,000+ hour light source life, stable intensity for consistent process control and instant start-up for immediate curing.
