Orthopedic Prostheses Masks

Orthopedic Prostheses Masks

Orthopedic prostheses such as hip joints, knees, bone plates, and spinal implants contain both highly polished surfaces and rough, coated surfaces. Tangent UV light curable masking materials can provide absolute protection and delineation between these surfaces. Tangent UV masks are designed for removal by manual peel, which can be accelerated by incorporating a quick hot water dip/rinse prior to peel.

Adhesives for Hearing Aid/Audiology Device Assembly

Adhesives for Hearing Aid/Audiology Device Assembly

Hearing aid adhesives must function in the wonderland that is the inner ear canal; acidic surface, coated with a combination of oil, perspiration, and ear wax. Our custom hearing aid adhesives are impervious to these substances to ensure reliable operation. Audiology device assembly also has its challenges. Shells and faceplates are molded in assorted colors using pigmented resins which reduce the transmission of light energy. Our higher power equipment overcomes lower light transmission.
