MATERIALS: For bonding applications that must withstand impact or flexing, Henkel Corp. has introduced two new Loctite® Flashcure® Light Cure Cyanoacrylate Instant Adhesives. Featuring extremely fast cure speeds and a secondary moisture-cure mechanism that allows the adhesives to cure thoroughly in unexposed areas, these new toughened light cure formulations adhere to a wide variety of substrates including plastics, elastomers, rubbers, and metals.Loctite® 4310™Flashcure® and Loctite® 4311™ Flashcure® Light Cure Cyanoacrylate Instant Adhesives cure tack-free in just two to five seconds upon exposure to low-intensity UV/visible light. Both adhesives are fluorescent for inspection purposes and meet ISO 10993 biocompatibility standards. They can be used for bonding hypodermic needles, hearing aids, handheld electronics, household and industrial products. These cyanoacrylate instant adhesives are also suitable for sensor bonding and wire tacking applications.
Loctite® 4310™ Flashcure® Light Cure Cyanoacrylate Instant Adhesive is a clear to pale green, low-viscosity formulation that fills gaps to 0.005 inches using only moisture cure and can cure to depths up to 0.5 inches on exposure to light. Loctite® 4311™ Flashcure® Light Cure Cyanoacrylate Instant Adhesive is a high-viscosity, clear to pale green formulation that fills larger gaps to 0.008-inches using only moisture cure and can be cured to depths up to 0.5 inches on exposure to light. Both adhesives withstand temperatures ranging from -65 to 180F.
