Biocompatible Adhesives for Tube Set Assembly

Panacol-USA’s biocompatible adhesives provide the bond strength, flexibility, and speed of cure that is demanded in breathing circuit component and IV tube set assembly. Primarily comprised of Panacol-USA’s Vitralit® brand LED and uv cure adhesives, these products fully cure in fractions of a second under low intensity UV or Visible Light. Vitralit® adhesives are ideal for use with Honle’s LED light curing equipment. LED lamps maintain cooler component surface temperatures, minimizing plasticizer migration and thin-walled substrate deformation.
Panacol’s biocompatible adhesives are moisture resistant, extremely flexible, and when cured, possess dry, tack-free surfaces. This selection of adhesives is particularly effective with highly plasticized substrates such as PVC, polyethylene, and other flexible polymer blends. High bond strength, extreme flexibility, and low shrinkage contribute to consistent performance after sterilization and aging. Specifically designed for use in medical product assemblies, the adhesives are formulated to meet USP Class VI and ISO 10993 biocompatibility standards, and are compatible with gamma, EtO, and peroxide plasma sterilization processes.

Biocompatible adhesives from Panacol-USA are available with a orange fluorescing marker for quality control 

The individual adhesives are capable of bonding multiple substrates including PVC, polyethylene, polycarbonate, acrylic, and styrene. They are ideally suited for IV tubing and connectors, anesthesia masks, breathing bags, and laryngeal mask airways (LMA).

Please contact Panacol-USA to confirm your product selection and to secure additional application assistance, including samples and process recommendations. In the event that these standard products do not satisfactorily address your performance requirements, Panacol-USA will investigate other solutions that include development of adhesive specifically tailored to the complexity of your application.
