This line of single-component light and moisture curing silicone adhesives is designed for use on medical devices that incorporate silicone materials or require highly flexible bond joints or coatings. All three products in the line cure within 30 seconds on exposure to a suitable UV/visible light source. These medical silicone adhesives eliminate part racking and allow immediate quality control testing. To ensure robust assemblies, the products offer high-bond strengths on silicone and plastics including polycarbonate. The silicones demonstrate tear strengths in excess of 50 pounds per inch and elongation of more than 140 percent in the cured state, resulting in tough, yet flexible bond lines. These adhesives are ideal for use on catheters, respiratory devices and connections, medical tubing, and tracheotomy devices.
