Sterilization Resistant Adhesives

Sterilization Resistant Adhesive SystemsWorldwide manufacturers of disposable and reusable medical devices specify Master Bond sterilization resistant adhesives, sealants, coatings, potting and encapsulation compounds for their most demanding needs. They are USP Class VI certified and designed to adhere well to a wide range of substrates. These user friendly products can be cured at ambient temperatures, elevated temperatures or by exposure to UV light.

Adhesives, Sealants and Coatings with Outstanding Sterilization Resistance

Grades are available that resist the following sterilization methods:

  • Steam autoclave
  • Ethylene oxide (ETO)
  • Radiation
  • Cold chemical sterilants

Select products will retain their performance properties even upon exposure to multiple sterilization cycles. These products are formulated for reusable medical devices.
