Medical Device Bonding

Light curable medical device adhesives from Panacol-USA possess the reliability demanded by this market. Formulated to meet the most stringent standards of USP Class VI and ISO 10993 biocompatibility, Panacol-USA medical device assembly adhesives of the Vitralit® line deliver consistent high performance. These single component formulations are solvent-free, and fully cure in seconds when exposed to Ultraviolet (UV) or UV/Visible light energy. In case the substrates to be bonded are non permeable to uv or visible light, our two-component Structalit® adhesives are the perfect solution. Both Vitralit® and Structalit® adhesive brands are compatible with gamma, EtO, peroxide plasma, and E-Beam sterilization processes.

Medical device assembly can involve an incredibly broad array of applications. For this reason, Panacol-USA offers an adhesive selection with a wide range of performance parameters and cured properties. Custom adhesive development is always an option with Panacol-USA in order to satisfy unique performance requirements and component configurations.

Polycarbonate medical devices can be reliably bonded with solvent-free uv adhesive from Panacol-USA

Panacol-USA medical device assembly adhesives bond with materials traditionally used by device manufacturers, as well as many of the most recent introductions from polymer manufacturers. These include various grades of polycarbonate, acrylic, polyurethane, ABS, PVC, polyethylene, polyimide, stainless steel, and glass. They can be used in applications relating to reservoirs, transducers, blood collection and drug delivery systems, surgical instruments, diagnostic equipment, breathing circuits, ophthalmic devices, and catheters.

As part of the medical device adhesive selection, Panacol-USA offers its LEDcure adhesives under the Vitralit® brand. LEDcure adhesives fully cure under low intensity visible light in fractions of a second. They are ideal for use with LED light curing equipment. The adhesive surfaces cure dry and tack-free, including those which possess the greatest elongation and flexibility.
