Norland Optical Adhesives are clear, solvent-free optical adhesives designed to fully cure in only minutes when exposed to ultraviolet light. These adhesives are used in precision alignment or positioning applications that require a robust and resilient bond. Norland Optical Adhesives feature a variety of bonding types, including but not limited to glass to glass, glass to glass/metal, and plastic to plastic/glass. 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 process to perfect product alignment.
