A new family of UV curing Aerobic Acrylic adhesives has been developed and positioned specifically for optical assembly applications. The development of this new optical adhesives line is the result of a strong response to and use of industrial grades of Aerobic Acrylic adhesives by various companies in the optical industry. The purpose of this paper is to introduce the new product line to the optical assembly industry and describe the features and benefits it has to offer. This paper will discuss significant benefits of the new optical adhesives including: Higher strength bonds - comparable to epoxies; Faster cures than typical optical grade UV curing mercaptoesters; Low stress, high strength bonds lead to superior durability; Where they may be used to replace slower curing adhesives; and How Aerobic Acrylic formulations achieve these benefits.
