Adhesive curing sets for medical device manufacturers

23 November 2010

Intertronics has introduced a complete system of UV adhesives and LED curing systems from partner, DYMAX, specifically for the assembly of medical devices. DYMAX UV adhesives cure upon exposure to light, and their ability to cure in seconds enables faster processing and greater output resulting in lower processing costs.

Intertronics has identified two adhesives that pair well with the BlueWave LED Prime for ultra-fast cures. They are designed for rapid bonding of a wide variety of the plastics typically used in the manufacture of medical devices such as reservoirs, tube sets, port fittings and drug delivery systems. The fast cure and limited heat emitted by the BlueWave LED Prime provides an ideal system for heat-sensitive substrates, where thin walls may be subject to warping or stretching.

DYMAX 1020-M Ultra Light-Weld adhesive is ultra fast, tack free and visible/UV light curable in less than two seconds. The complementary 1120-M-UR Ultra-Red is not only ultra fast/tack free, but when cured also fluoresces bright red under low-intensity black light. The bright red fluorescence contrasts extremely well on plastics that naturally fluoresce blue in colour, and greatly assists with visual inspection on bond-line areas.
