Optical Adhesives for glass, metal, ceramics and plastics
Gluing is an essential technological process in many industrial technologies. The state-of-the-art adhesives are especially designed to meet the wide range of applications, while highly specialized.
They are simplifying bonding processes, guaranteeing high processing speed combined with high reliability.
They are used for bonding of optical components where the adhesive is index matched to the components which has to be glued together. Special glues are developed to fix fiber in v-grooves. The refractive index is precisely controlled and can very from low to high realizing a perfect optical match of materials.
Another group of adhesives is designed for sealing of optical components. To improve long-term reliability in mechanical protection and moisture prevention, optical devices are housed in protective cases of metal, plastic, etc. The reliability, especially in moisture resistance, of optical parts is greatly influenced by the characteristics of the sealant used for the openings and case junctions of the protective cases in the devices.
Curing conditions can be different, using either heat or UV light to reach the maximum on bonding power.
