XL-193 Transparent Epoxy Cement For Bonding Clear Stones

DESIGNED TO CORRECT THE OPTICAL QUALITY OF EPOXY

PROTAVIC XL-193 is a transparent, water-clear, free flowing 2 part epoxy resin cement developed as a multi-purpose industrial adhesive. PROTAVIC XL-193 clear cement is particularly suited to jewelry for bonding clear, colorless, and colored stones into settings and as a “staking” cement because of its clarity and opalescence. PROTAVIC XL-193 is designed to correct the optical quality of epoxy by interaction with ultra-violet and visible light.

PROTAVIC XL-193 is intended for applications where there is need for sparkling clarity and superior structural mechanical and electrical properties. The “adhesive affinity” of PROTAVIC XL-193 provides tenacious bonds to a wide variety of substances. As a casting material PROTAVIC XL-193 hardens to a resilient clear plastic suitable for optical devices. It may be tinted or colored as required for applications in electronics such as light emitting diodes (LED) and ebulliometer windows.

PROTAVIC XL-193 has a long working life at room temperature, and thus adapts readily to use in volume proportioning dispenser devices.
