LC 177
UV Curable Adhesive

 

Born2BondTM LC range is based on a patented UV acrylic adhesives technology and shows unmatched performance in term of resistance and flexibility. These adhesives are transparent and have been designed for bonding a wide range of dissimilar substrates for industrial applications, including metals if bonded to a transparent material. The outstanding properties of Bostik LC range allow structural bonding while keeping flexibility. These products have been developed to resist aggressive environments. It shows unprecedented results facing weathering and ageing.

Key Features

Limited Application: PA, PBT, PC

Directions for use

Before applying LC177, ensure that the surface is clean, dry, and free of grease. Most plastics require simple cleaning prior to bonding, while some may benefit from surface treatment for enhanced performance. Optimal results are achieved at room temperature, between 12°C and 35°C, without post-curing.

Avoid direct sunlight or exposure to artificial light sources. Store materials in a cool place away from heat sources. Please read the Material Safety Data Sheet before handling or using this product.

Curing time must be determined and qualified under real conditions and in the intended use environment. It will vary based on factors such as substrate light absorption, adhesive thickness, light spectrum, irradiation intensity, distance from the lamp, and temperature. For process robustness, it is recommended to increase light exposure time and/or intensity during initial curing time qualification to account for potential variations in operational conditions.
