UV Adhesives

3M™ Scotch-Weld™ UV Adhesives are high performance, single component products which ‘cure on demand’ when exposed to UV light. They have excellent adhesion to many materials including plastics and are available in a range of viscosities including low, medium and high.

These UV adhesives produce clear bond lines which allows for tidy applications, are ideal for automated production and can be used for bonding most glass, metal and plastic combinations where at least one surface will allow UV penetration. Typical applications include coating, bonding, encapsulation, laminating and potting.

UV Adhesives
Low Viscosity UV Adhesive

We have a range of low viscosity UV adhesives that offer a high strength solution when it comes to bonding a variety of materials. Their rapid cure and easy dispensing properties are among the many features of these products that help to improve production and end use.

Product Use

The low viscosity of these products mean that they can wick into pre-assembled parts and are especially suited to decorative glass bonding. They are high-performance adhesives that will cure to give a clear, flexible bond when exposed to UV light.

Key Features

These low viscosity UV adhesives can be used for bonding, joining, ahering, attaching and assembling. They are particularly well suited to decorative or structural glass bonding and bonding stainless steel to thermoplastics. With USP Class VI approval, they are also suitable for use in medical devices.

Medium Viscosity UV Adhesive

These single component, medium viscosity UV adhesives cure quickly to give a clear, flexible bond when exposed to UV light. They can be used on a variety of materials including glass, rigid PVC and polycarbonate.

Key Features

As well as exhibiting excellent resistance to heat ageing, these adhesives give clear bond lines which allow for tidy applications. Their flexibilities vary, with some products offering little and others whose flexible nature increases the load-bearing and shock-absorbing characteristics of the joint.

They provide very high-strength bonds, will adhere to most plastics and other substrates and possess rapid-cure properties.

Product Use

These medium viscosity UV adhesives can be used to bond glass-to-glass, rigid PVC and polycarbonate. They are also particularly recommended for bonding glass bevels to sheet glass.
