The 1000 seres of medical device adhesives make high-speed, high-volume bonding of medical device housings, tube sets, catheters, enclosures, and housings possible. These solvent-free adhesives replace ultrasonic welding applications and costly two-part products. They are USP Class VI and ISO 10993 certified, moisture and humidity resistant, leave no residue, and are available in gap-filling viscosities. Designed for plastic joints utilizing overlaps, flanges, or tabs, these adhesives cure to give a very strong bond. The system emits a maximum visible light intensity output of over 2,500 mW/cm2 from an 8.0 mm diameter lightguide and allows users to adjust intensity output from 0% to 100%.
