New UV adhesive for decorations and dome coatings 16 September 2020

Vitralit® UC 6685 was formulated by Panacol specifically for decorations on plastic, glass or metal. Due to its slight magnifying property, the transparent adhesive produces a high-quality image of the structures and illustrations underneath.

Vitralit® UC 6685 is a transparent, UV-curing adhesive based on epoxy resin. Being one-component the adhesive is easy to dispense. Its viscosity makes it suitable for decorative applications on flacons and bottles or for dome coatings, an elegant protective coating for key rings, lapel pins, buttons, name tags, pens and jewellery, for example.

Under UV light in the wavelength range from 320 nm to 390 nm, Vitralit UC 6685 can be cured in just a few seconds, enabling a high cycle rate in the production process. The in-house UV and LED UV systems of Dr Hönle are perfectly matched to the adhesive for particularly fast and easy curing under UV light.

After curing, Vitralit UC 6685 is very hard and scratch-resistant, it is characterized by its brilliant transparency and does not yellow as it ages.
