TYPICAL CURING PERFORMANCE
LOCTITE® AA 3494™ can be cured by exposure to ultraviolet
and/or visible light of sufficient intensity. Surface cure is
enhanced by exposure to UV light in the 220 to 260 nm
range. Cure rate and ultimate depth of cure depend on light
intensity, spectral distribution of the light source, exposure time
and light transmittance of the substrate through which the light
This product is not recommended for use in pure oxygen
and/or oxygen rich systems and should not be selected as
a sealant for chlorine or other strong oxidizing materials.
For safe handling information on this product, consult the
Safety Data Sheet (SDS).
Directions for use:
- This product is light sensitive; exposure to daylight, UV
light and artificial lighting should be kept to a minimum
during storage and handling.
- The product should be dispensed from applicators with
- For best performance bond surfaces should be clean and
free from grease.
- Cure rate is dependent on lamp intensity, distance from
light source, depth of cure needed or bondline gap and
light transmittance of the substrate through which the
radiation must pass.
- Recommended intensity for cure in an adhesive
application (between substrates) is 40mW/cm² minimum
(measured at the bondline) with an exposure time of 5-6
times the fixture time at this same intensity.
- For dry curing of exposed surfaces, higher intensity UV is
required (100 mW/cm²).
- Cooling should be provided for temperature sensitive
substrates such as thermoplastics.
- Plastic grades should be checked for risk of stress
cracking when exposed to liquid adhesive.
- Excess uncured adhesive can be wiped away with organic
solvent (e.g. Acetone).
- Bonds should be allowed to cool before subjecting to any
