NOA 138 is recommended for bonding for glass to glass. Adhesion is also good to cellulose acetate butyrate. NOA 138 is cured by ultraviolet light between 315 to 395 nm. Full cure requires 6 Joules/cm². The adhesive exhibits oxygen inhibition when used as a coating. To overcome this the adhesive must be cured under an inert atmosphere, such as nitrogen.
