has developed and released new light-curing adhesives for medical device manufacture. Applications for the adhesives include the manufacture of catheters, tube sets, reservoirs, respiratory masks, syringes, and oxygenators. The company also produces adhesives for the appliance, aerospace, industrial, electronics and metal finishing industries. The new 215-CTH-UR-SC LED-optimized catheter adhesive for medical device manufacture changes color as it cures, and allows technicians to determine whether bonds are secure by inspecting them under UV light. The LED-curing adhesive fluoresces red under UV light, allowing for easy quality control. 215-CTH-UR-SC is compatible with a variety of substrates including Nylon 12 and PEBA. Other developments from Dymax include adhesives for needle bonding, BlueWave LED flood curing systems and BlueWaveQX4 high intensity spot curing systems. The clear, solvent-free medical adhesives and light-curing systems can be used to bond metal, glass and various medical plastics.
