Guide to medical adhesives released

Intertronics has released an enhanced version of its Dymax Selector Guide on adhesives for medical device assembly.

The guide contains a number of charts intended to help R and D engineers and product designers choose the appropriate adhesive for their application. All Dymax MD adhesives are biocompatibility tested in accordance with ISO 10993 and/or USP Class VI.

Pages are devoted to specific adhesives for the assembly of catheters and guide-wires, injection needles and syringes and respiratory devices.

Multi-purpose bonding charts quickly show the range of products available, their technical data, and the various substrates to which they adhere. Most products shown bond well to a number of plastic substrates as well as to dissimilar substrates such as metal, glass and ceramic. While most formulations cure instantly upon exposure to UV/visible light, the line of cyanoacrylates is offered for bonding opaque substrates and for applications where aggressive adhesion to rubber is needed.

On the last page of the guide is a selection of dispensing and related equipment built to optimise both performance and cost savings.
