HACKENSACK, N.J., Dec. 8, 2014 — Suited for bonding dissimilar substrates, a new UV-curable adhesive from Master Bond can be used in fiber optic, optical, laser and other applications. UV15X-2 cures in 10 to 30 seconds when exposed to a UV light source. It is clear after curing and has a refractive index of 1.51. It offers very low shrinkage upon curing and a tensile strength of 6000 to 7000 psi. The compound is able to withstand rigorous thermal cycling from -80 to 300 °F. It resists many chemicals, such as water, oils, fuels, acids and bases.
