HENKEL LOCTITE STYCAST OS 5101, a dual cure adhesive for optimal, precise optical lens and component alignment during the in-line assembly process. Material provide improved alignment accuracy for maximum light transmission in high-speed optical transport network solutions. After a first stage UV partial cure, product allows precise positioning of optical lenses within the transceiver optical sub-assembly and, once final thermal curing takes place, the material maintains its dimensional stability to ensure accurate lens position while in operation. In addition to high reliability as confirmed by high temperature/high humidity, thermal shock and high temperature storage testing, internal results also indicate that material properties of the product are capable of delivering other important performance metrics for 100GbE to 400GbE transceiver optical bonding.
