Process whereby typically two pieces of plastic are glued together using a UV Curing adhesive which Is cured by a UV light. The advantage of using this technique is that the “glued” joints are stronger than plastic itself and the bond is aesthetically very high quality.
Acrylic sheet can be easily joined to itself or other plastic surfaces with commercially available solvent cements. The proper cementing of acrylic sheet is a vital step in creating attractive, high-quality displays that exhibit strong, unblemished joints.
The most popular form of joining acrylic sheet, works because of the ability of a low-viscosity, solvent-type cement to flow into a joint gap by capillary action. Properly done, capillary cementing yields a strong, transparent joint.
Polymerizable Two Component Adhesion
Polymerizing adhesives are polymers dissolved in monomers, which cure when a hardener is added. The cure is brought about by a chemical reaction. Polymerizing adhesives fill better, imposing fewer demands on the fit and accuracy of parts. These adhesives must be used when strength and resistance to environmental conditions are required.
Some plastic substrates such as PET and PETG do not react well to some of the adhesive methods listed above. When bonding of these materials is required, we use rods manufactured from the required materials to weld the parts together.
