    Abstract

    Adhesive joints in glass construction have been realized with one- and two-component silicones for more than 20 years. However, ultraviolet and visible light curing acrylates in glass constructions provide additional design potential due to their inherent transparency, their advantages in regard to the production process, and their increased material strength. The aging behavior of these adhesives was comprehensively examined by testing bonded joints of annealed glass and metal to gain in-depth knowledge of their durability. The study was expanded by testing full-scale samples of various glass applications.
