In industry, adhesives that cure thermally at room or high temperatures are used mainly for substrates that are not heat sensitive or not transparent and therefore cannot be cured with UV light.
Many Panacol adhesives are dual-curing: Initial curing is achieved with visible or UV light before hidden zones and deeper-lying regions are then fully cured by applying heat.
Panacol offers a variety of thermal curing adhesives:
- most adhesives of the Vitralit® brand are dual curing
- 1-part adhesives of the Structalit® make are thermal cure only
