Dual cure: DELO DUALBOND completes curing in a matter of seconds

In some settings and applications, it is impossible to cure just with light – so we rely on dual cure. Especially when it comes to components with larger shadow zones, dual curing offers significant advantages: It combines the option of light curing with reliable results in shadowed areas by offering another curing mechanism: heat or humidity, for example! For great results, pick a DELO dual cure adhesive!

Application areas


UV Curing
  • Good resistance to thermal shock
  • Fast light curing and reliable curing in shadowed areas
  • Universal adhesion to many substrates
  • Optimum flow behavior for sealing and casting
  • Range from flexible to hard
  • Transparent dual cure adhesives available for large bonding areas

Application examples

Consumer electronics

Adhesives for Smartphone - DELO-DUALBOND

DELO DUALBOND dual cure adhesives are used for bonding touch panel elements in cell phones. Here, glass covers and plastic substrates with black print are used widely: They are non-translucent and sensitive to temperature, so the adhesive's curing process has to happen at room temperature.

Pin sealing

Pin-Sealing with DELO-DUALBOND

When potting pins, connectors and microswitches, there are cavities. Through these, uncured adhesives may enter components – which can cause corrosion on electrical contacts. Combining light and humidity for a dual curing process prevents corrosion – increasing the lifespan of materials!


Displaybonding with DELO-DUALBOND

Displays often need adhesives that can be cured under opaque black print, within the respective housing elements. With DELO DUALBOND dual cure, this is possible thanks to combined light-humidity curing!
