Advise needed on UV light setting adhesives
Posted by ship69 on Thursday, January 25, 2018 11:49 AM

Hello, I am new here.

I am looking for advice on what is the best UV light cured adhesive to bond glass onto glass/metal/model-making plastics such as ABS/PolyStyrene.

It must be optically flat, resist yellowing and be reasonably robust and impact-resistant.

What adhesive should I use? And can you recommend a low-cost UV light source?

Many thanks

Welcome to the Forums! Glad to have you aboard.

I don't know anything about those glues but I've seen them advertised on TV and the members here frequently talk about using them. Hang in there and you will probably get some answers soon. You could also try posting your question in the "Materials" section of these Forums. Might get the answers you're looking for there. Hope that this helps.
