Norland Optical Adhesives are clear, solvent-free optical adhesives designed to fully cure in only minutes when exposed to ultraviolet light. Norland Optical Adhesives are used in precision alignment or positioning applications that require a robust and resilient bond. To use Norland Optical Adhesives, apply the adhesive to the optical surface, position the components, and use a UV light source to set the components in place. Since the adhesive will not cure until exposed to UV light, time can be taken during the positioning stage.
Pre-loaded dispenser barrels are also available for use with a handheld dispensing system to ease adhesive application. To ensure proper use, an appropriate dispenser and dispenser tip should be used. Warm, soapy water or acetone can be used to debond components.
