UV light cure adhesives harden quickly when exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light. This is because the adhesive contains special components that react with the UV light. This causes a chemical reaction that bonds the adhesive to the surfaces being joined. The result is a strong, long-lasting bond.
To cure a UV light-cure adhesive, you need to apply it to the surface or surfaces you want to bond, ensuring it is evenly spread. Then, you can use a specialized UV curing lamp or natural sunlight as a source of UV rays to cure the adhesive. Hold the UV light source close to the adhesive and leave it in place for the amount of time specified in the manufacturer’s instructions. Once the recommended curing time has elapsed, the adhesive will be fully cured and ready for use.
