Adhesives for Fiber Optics Assembly
Making the Right Choice
Using the proper adhesive in the assembly of fiber optic components not only saves time and expense, but also can improve reliability and performance. Adhesives for fiber optic components that perform well on glass, metal, ceramic and most plastic substrates provide excellent chemical and solvent resistance. They also can act as an electrical insulator and may be used in high-strength optical alignment applications. In addition, they can bond dissimilar materials quickly and efficiently,...
