Vitralit UC 6025 is especially suited for cosmetics applications.

Especially designed for the cosmetics industry, Vitralit UC 6025 has an optimal viscosity for gap-filling applications. The one-component epoxy adhesive is odourless and easy to dispense. Its controllability and fast curing properties make the adhesive suitable for applications requiring a high performance.

Curing within a few seconds

Vitralit UC 6025 can be cured with UV or visible light in just a few seconds. The adhesive curing process can be further optimised by using UV/LED curing equipment from Dr. Hönle. The fluorescing version of the adhesive, Vitralit UC 6025 F, allows in-line process control for maximum productivity.

Once cured, the adhesive has high adhesion to ABS, aluminium and glass. These properties and lack of odour make Vitralit UC 6025 ideal for applications in the cosmetics industry. Application examples include bonding lipstick applicators or bottle lids.
