Techsil has introduced a light curing acrylate adhesive from Panacol. Vitralit 7311 is said to be specially formulated for bonding plastics, metals and glass and is available in three different viscosities - a low viscosity, medium flow and a non-flowing gel.
Vitralit 7311cures in seconds with ultraviolet or visible light. For excellent curing results, high intensity LEDs at 405 nm wavelength are recommended. This wavelength also permits the bonding of materials like polycarbonate which block UV rays. As an example, Vitralit 7311, can be utilized for needle bonding in medical device manufacturing.
All three variations of Vitralit 7311provide adhesion to plastics like Polycarbonate, PVC, ABS and PMMA, as well as to metal and glass. Vitralit 7311is transparent and non-yellowing. It is resistant to alcohols and humidity. Once cured, the adhesive will be viscoplastic. For use in medical applications Vitralit 7311is currently being tested according to USP Class VI and DIN ISO 10993-4/-5 standards.
