Dymax Ultra Light-Weld 3099 data sheet - .PDF file.

Dauphin Restoration has used Dymax Ultra Light-Weld 3099 adhesive in the assembly of a museum-quality decorative display table in 40mm smoked acrylic destined for a high-end modern London house.

The design called for a large number of small acrylic blocks (approximately 100) to be fixed onto three larger pieces of thick smoked acrylic, forming a contemporary cubist style table.

The cubes not only add thickness and style, they contribute strength at the joints where the structure is built up a block at a time. The whole assembly — joints and all — are fully visible and must pass 100 per cent inspection.

According to Alex Abbott of Dauphin, it became clear at an early stage that a UV and visible light cure adhesive was the only way to do the job. It would give the team the opportunity to apply, assemble and inspect at leisure to ensure full coverage and no bubbles. Any excess after adjustment could be wiped off and then the assembly light cured in seconds.

The Dymax Ultra Light-Weld 3099 was applied manually with a dispensing gun and cured in seconds with an IUV250 curing flood lamp.
