Needle Bonding Adhesives

Needle Bonding AdhesivesSingle component, no mix epoxy and UV curable adhesive systems offer fast cure speeds in bonding cannulae to hubs in syringe needle assembly applications. Available in a variety of viscosities, these compounds are designed for high volume production operations. They are USP Class VI certified and resist exposure to steam autoclaving, ETO and gamma radiation sterilization exposure.

Advantages of Master Bond Adhesives for Needle Assembly Applications

These formulations prevent fluid leakage (e.g. blood, medicines). They also secure a fixed positioning of the cannula. Significant advantages of each chemistry include:

UV Curable Systems

  • One part, no mix formulations
  • Fast cures
  • Solvent free compositions
  • Range of viscosities and hardnesses
  • Transparency
  • Easy automation

One Part Heat Cure Epoxies

  • No mix formulations
  • High strength bonds
  • Toughness
  • Excellent depth of cure
  • Solvent free systems
  • Easy application

High Strength Properties

Both one part epoxies and UV cure systems exhibit excellent adhesion to metals, plastics and glass. With proper surface preparation, adhesion to commonly used plastic hub materials is superb. They include:

  • Acrylic
  • Polycarbonate
  • Polystyrene
  • Polyethylene
  • ABS

Needle bonding adhesives also feature high thermal stability. These compounds are fluorescent and can be inspected with a low intensity black light.
