Masterbond Introduces a Unique High Strength UV Curing Adhesive

Master Bond UV10FL-1 is a unique UV cure adhesive formulated and manufactured by Master Bond Inc. Its exceptional high strength profile and its ability to cure in thick sections, propels UV10FL-1 over conventional UV curing adhesives. The bond strength is equal or exceeds those obtained from conventional room temperature curing epoxy compositions. It has a tensile strength of 2,850 psi, a tensile modulus of 154,000 psi. Yet it remains a flexible adhesive with elongation at break of 43%.

Ready for use as supplied and ideal as a casting compound, UV10FL-1 is a low viscosity liquid adhesive and can be cured in a wide range of section thicknesses. Castings up to ¼” thick can be prepared.

This clear epoxy doesn’t require complete cure by the UV source since polymerization will continue after exposure. The UV curable adhesive also exhibits high heat resistance for service up to 150°C. High bond strength is obtained with metals, ceramics, glass, many plastics and elastomers. Long term bond durability is excellent even when exposed to adverse environmental conditions and in contact with water, acids, bases, salts and most organic chemicals. As far as any UV adhesives go, UV10FL-1 has excellent fatigue resistance and performs well under stress even in adverse environments.
