Techsil launches UV adhesive for difficult-to-bond plastics

Techsil has launched a new transparent UV and visible light curing adhesive from the successful Vitralit® UV 4050s series. Vitralit® UV 4050 MV features medium viscosity and is well suited for bonding plastics like PVC, ABS, SAN and PC but also bonds well to stainless steel and glass.


When cured it shows a very good flexibility and an excellent stability. This transparent adhesive has a very low shrinkage of only 2%. The newly developed adhesive provides excellent adhesion to most plastics like PVC, ABS, SAN and PC, as well as to stainless steel and glass. If at least one assembly material is transparent, Vitralit® UV 4050 MV will cure very quickly to produce a strong and reliable bond. UV blocked materials like polycarbonate can be cured thanks to the adhesive’s ability to cure with visible light (>400nm).


Vitralit® UV 4050 MV cures in seconds with UV-A and visible light. Both gas discharge lamps and LEDs are suitable to use for curing. Excellent curing results have been achieved with LED lights with a wavelength of 405 nm. Vitralit® UV 4050 MV is currently being tested according to USP Class VI and DIN ISO 10993-4/-5 standards for use in medical applications.


Vitralit® UV 4050 MV is manufactured by Panacol, Techsil’s UV adhesives partner. Panacol-Elosol GmbH, a member of global Hoenle group, is an international supplier of adhesives with a broad product range that includes UV curable adhesives, structural adhesives, and conductive adhesives.
