Light-curing adhesives are primarily used in connection technology where rapid curing is required. These one-component products cure at room temperature within seconds after irradiation with UV light. This allows very short cycle times, even with large numbers of pieces. The use of purely UV-curing adhesives requires that at least one of the components to be joined has sufficient UV permeability or the adhesive surface can be exposed directly to a UV source. For components that have shadow zones and therefore cannot be exposed completely, dual-curing adhesives are suitable, which, in addition to curing with light, have a second curing mechanism. Here, thermal, anaerobic or humidity post-crosslinking systems are available.
