A sticky subject

The Opti-tec range of optical adhesives and encapsulants from Intertronics includes many with high optical clarity or other special properties related to specific optical applications such as fibre-optic termination or optical potting and encapsulation.

Some of the range has passed ISO 10993 testing for medical device manufacture or are Telcordia GR-326-CORE compliant. Specialist applications include LED protection, bonding of surgical instruments like endoscopes and fibre-optic terminating.

Opti-tec epoxies offer excellent optical characteristics with features such as room/low temperature cure, long pot life, glass/metal bonding, and high temperature resistance. Potting compounds and encapsulants also provide low stress, non-yellowing, low fluorescence and very low viscosity dependent upon choice. Some of the high temperature adhesives can resist autoclaving.

Furthermore, Opti-tec temporary adhesives are insoluble in cold water but fully soluble in hot water and involve no wax, no residues or solvents; making them ideal for applications such as polishing, grinding, lapping and dicing with high shear strength and suitable for glass, ceramics and semiconductors.
