Automotive glazing bonding with UV-LUX®


Inspired by possibilities arising from joining ever new materials with higher performance, additional functions and more secure bonding, Lohmann has introduced a genuine innovation: the world’s first UV light-activated adhesive tape technology – UV-LUX®.  

Bonding with UV-LUX® enables introducing a zero-gap strategy, ruling out relative movements of glass modules entirely. Additional safety within the bonding process is provided thanks to color change after activation. The cured bond is safe and gentle to glass, providing semi-structural strenghts with unmatched elongation for epoxy adhesives.

Activation with UV light in seconds, avoiding introducing heat and handling immediately after bonding can make your process more efficient and sustainable. What’s more, Lohmann can customize adhesive die-cuts and deliver already equipped attachment parts ready to use in your process to make it even more streamlined.
