Lower stress, higher quality assemblies as well as quantum increases in productivity are now possible with `new generation', light curing adhesives. This new technology makes obsolete the industry-accepted assumption that low strain requires slow curing UV adhesives, epoxies and cements. Curing in only seconds and without the need for secondary thermal cure, these new light curing adhesives produce laminates which are essentially strain-free, and edge bonds with shrinkage as low as 0.2%. This paper will compare and contrast these new adhesives with existing bonding technologies in typical applications. Included are comparison between epoxies, UV curing mercaptoesters, and the new light curing Aerobic Acrylates, as well as the incorporation of adhesives into optical component design.
