H.B. Fuller U3320

H.B. Fuller U3320 is a one-component, low-viscosity, UV-curable structural adhesive with excellent bonding characteristics on various plastics, especially PET/PETG and polycarbonate. The thin viscosity of U3320 makes it ideal for use in wicking applications, particularly on components with close-fitting tolerances.

General Instructions

Surfaces to be bonded should be clean and dry. Dispense a drop or drops to one surface only. Apply only enough to leave a thin film layer after compression. Press parts together and expose to UV dose when ready. An adequate bond should develop rapidly, depending on UV dose efficacy, and maximum strength is attained in 24 hours. Wipe off excess adhesive from the top of the container and recap. products, if left uncapped or exposed to sunlight, may deteriorate or cure prematurely.

Technical Details & Test Data

Curing Performance

Photoinitiation initiates the curing process. Handling strength is reached in a short time, and will vary based on UV dose efficacy, environmental conditions, bond line gap, and other factors. Product will continue to cure for at least 24 hours before full strength and solvent resistance is developed.
