3M™ Light Cure Adhesive


3M™ Light Cure Adhesive

Not offered for sale in the U.S.

Create an adhesive bond instantaneously with 3M™ Light Cure Adhesive. This high viscosity adhesive usually cures in less than 10 seconds, forming a flexible bond. With such fast curing, you can reduce processing times for many applications.

  • Eliminate the need to mix, prime, or rush to apply with this one-component system
  • No heat curing required, making it ideal for bonding temperature-sensitive plastics
  • Visible light cure adhesives provide depth of cure up to 4 inches deep, ideal for potting applications and thick section curing
  • 3M Red colored Light Cure Adhesive changes from red-to-yellow, creating a visual guide for precise hand applications
  • Convenient sizing and packaging for precise applications
  • Ideal for PCB, microelectronics assembly, wire tacking, potting or encapsulating
  • Solvent-free and non-hazardous, making shipping and storing easy
