Red-Fluorescing Light Cure Adhesive in Gel Formulation

Henkel Corp.'s Loctite 3979 Light Cure Adhesive is a translucent, non-sagging gel formulation designed to fill moderate gaps without migrating beyond its intended location. Loctite 3979 cures in seconds upon exposure to UV/visible light and fluoresces red for easy on-part detection prior to or following cure.

Loctite 3979 Light Cure Adhesive offers high adhesion (up to 3500 psi) on plastic, metal and glass substrates and is ideal for use on parts that feature inherent blue fluorescing agents. This single-component, gel viscosity adhesive can be used on vertical or porous surfaces as it will not drip, run or migrate. Curing to depths greater than 0.25 inches, Loctite 3979 is ISO-10993 biocompatible and can be used for bonding or sealing a range of medical devices including medical tubing and fluid/respiratory devices.

This non-drip adhesive cures tack-free on exposure to the appropriate intensity of UV/visible light. Loctite 3979 will withstand temperatures ranging from -65 to 300F and is available in both 25 ml syringes and 300 ml cartridges, Loctite 3979 can be dispensed manually or with automated dispense equipment. This adhesive can be used in a range of applications including medical device, appliance, electrical component, electronic, wire tacking and general industrial bonding and sealing.
