New adhesives for high performance ADAS sensors

Henkel Adhesive Technologies, under its Loctite brand, is expanding its range of dedicated active alignment adhesives for ADAS sensors, which are essential for precision and high sensor reliability.

The Loctite 3296 and Loctite Ablestik NCA 3218 are both new dual cure adhesives (UV & thermal) that are said by Henkel to meet a variety of assembly requirements through their respective adhesive performance characteristics.

According to Henkel, the Loctite 3296 provides a very high cure depth after only a few seconds of exposure to UV light and is designed to bond particularly well to aluminium and FR4.

Loctite Ablestik NCA 3218, which has a grey colour for more efficient light blocking, is said to be designed for assembly processes that require low post-cure temperatures, making it especially favourable for assembling components made of plastic.

Henkel claims both products deliver proven high dimensional stability after cure.
