Local Artist Utilizes Hernon Ultrabond Adhesive for Unique Creations
Ultrabond® 740 offers several advantages over traditional adhesives and is an ideal adhesive solution for glass sculptures.
Hernon Manufacturing is pleased to reveal a unique use of our specialized adhesives and UV curing systems. Local artist Diana Hanson, renowned for her ability to show the endless possibilities of glass in each accomplished sculpture, has chosen Hernon’s Ultrabond® 740 as the adhesive used to bond each piece of glass in place as she builds her masterpieces. Diana Hanson started with a love of Dalle de Verre slab glass and taught herself how to work with this classic material in non-traditional ways, incorporating new techniques as she encountered local practices during her travels in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean Islands, Europe and Asia. “Hernon’s Ultrabond® 740 is the perfect adhesive for my work with glass due to its UV curing properties and strong permanent bond,” Diana Hanson said, “and the fact that it bonds clear and is undetectable in the finished work allows me to focus on capturing light in the best way and making the most of the unique refractions displayed by each piece.”
Ultrabond® 740 offers several advantages over traditional adhesives. It is a UV bonding adhesive, which means that after the adhesive is applied the substrate can still be manipulated until a UV light is applied that instantly hardens the glue. This bonding method also creates a stronger connection than alternative methods.
