Fast-Cure, Low-Shrink Adhesive
TORRINGTON, Conn., Aug. 14, 2009 – Dymax Corp.’s OP-67-LS optical-mechanical adhesive cures in seconds to bond optical components. Its low-shrink nature virtually eliminates movement during curing and subsequent thermal cycling, and it provides users with the ability to cure on demand upon exposure to long-wave UV and visible light, allowing maximum flexibility in positioning parts prior to cure.

Dymax-Adhesive.jpgThe adhesive offers good moisture resistance, low outgassing and adhesion to a variety of substrates including metal, glass, ceramic and polycarbonate, enabling its use in many critical and demanding applications. The material also exhibits a high depth of cure. Applications include fiber optic V-groove bonding, laser diode positioning, fiber pigtailing, transceiver potting, vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser positioning, and mounting active devices or passive couplers, prisms and other optical device assemblies.

The precision bonding adhesive has a one-year shelf life when stored at room temperature. Pot life is unlimited when kept in the dark. There is no waste or scrap as there is with two-part materials.

The company also manufactures a complete line of UV/visible light-curing systems that are matched to the curing chemistry of OP-67-LS for fast, automated manufacturing and lower processing costs. High-intensity spotlamps provide fast cures for small drops of adhesive, while stationary floodlamps and lamps mounted over conveyors provide curing of assembly resins in large-area applications.

An intermolecular substance that serves to hold materials together. Two types are used in the optical industry: one, which must be transparent and colorless, to cement lenses together; and a general-purpose adhesive for bonding prisms and other glass parts to their metallic supports.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
A tough, durable, heat- and cold-resistant optical quality plastic used in injection-molded items such as streetlight lenses, automotive taillights and audio compact discs.
