Krayden partnered with a global light bulb company to reinvent the process of light bulb production by utilizing the Loctite AA3462 Light Cure adhesive and coupled it with the CL30 LED Flood light and Cure Spot Light to optimize the fast curing process. The new LED bulbs have a circuit board and plastic collar that required a completely different method to bond the glass to the collar, and this combo of light cure adhesive and Loctite equipment was the only chemistry that delivered the required bond strength to fit their production line.
|What is the application?||Bonding light bulb glass body to the plastic collar|
|What issues was the end user having?||Needed an adhesive to bond the glass to plastic and meet UL specs. Had a 6 to 7 second window to apply and cure.|
|What material was used to solve the issue?||Loctite AA3462 light cure adhesive|
|Why was the material chosen for the application?||Coupled with Henkel’s new CL30 LED flood light and Cure Jet spot light, it cured in the allowed time.|
|Did the material improve the process?||Old, “traditional process” for incandescent and halogen bulbs is to bond the class to a metal base using cement and heat curing with open flames. Because the new LED bulbs have a circuit board and a plastic collar, they required a completely different method to bond the glass to the collar.|
|If So, how?||It was the only chemistry that gave the required bond strength and fit in their current production line|
|What industry/market was this material used in?||LED Lighting|
|It was at an acceptable level.
