Plastics Adhesive Has Color-Change Technology

DYMAX Ultra Light-Weld 3220-SCadhesive is formulated for rapid bonding and laminating of plastics such as PC, PVC, PET, ABS, and PU used in the assembly of plastic appliances, subcomponents, housings, and enclosures. It has low moisture absorption and low viscosity for easy dispensing.

Formulated with DYMAX’s exclusive See-Cure color-change technology, Ultra Light-Weld 3220-SC starts out bright blue in its uncured state. Because it is highly visible by operators during dispensing, voids and air bubbles can be identified before cure, thereby reducing scrap rates and increasing yield. The adhesive turns clear after properly curing, which serves as a visible indicator that it has received a sufficient dose of energy to reach full cure.
