Lens Bonding Cement

Lenses in cameras, microscopes and prisms and lenses in optical equipment such as lasers are often bonded to each other and their housing with special adhesives. So as not to impair the quality of the optics, these special cements must be optically clear adhesives with low shrinkage to prevent stress on the glass lenses. Low shrinkage is often achieved by the addition of nano-sized filler materials.

Because the optical components must be secured quickly after their precision adjustment, rapidly curing UV adhesives are commonly used here.

Panacol offers optically clear adhesives for bonding both glass and synthetic lenses. The table below lists a selection of adhesives that are suitable for bonding optical lenses. Further products and custom solutions are available on request.
