The article discusses the development of a new group of adhesives that cure under visible light (405-nanometers wavelength) compared to traditional light-cure adhesives that require ultraviolet (UV) with 250-365 nanometers (nm). On the factory floor, inexpensive light emitting diode (LED) lamps can replace expensive UV lighting and eliminate worries of eye injuries and skin burns in workers with the shift to visible light. The LED401 Series from Master Bond has a glassy smooth final finish.
