Select grades of technologically advanced adhesives/sealants have provided reliable solutions for the assembly of electrotherapeutic devices. These compounds possess tenacious bond strength, long term serviceability, outstanding electrical insulation characteristics for the assembly of compact portable units to large powerful devices. They are easy to dispense, are available in a range of hardnesses, cure speeds and provide excellent electrical properties. The electrical energy emanating from these devices has been successfully employed for strengthening muscles, improving circulation, pain reduction, tissue repair, joint mobility, relaxation of muscle spasms and promoting bone growth.
Patients are treated frequently with different wave forms and more than one type of electrotherapy to achieve the best results. Laser therapy and ultrasound can also be used in treatment even though they do not give off electrical current.
Master Bond has earned a well deserved reputation in providing top customer support and compounding tailor made products to meet specific requirements. This includes compounding systems to adhere similar/dissimilar substrates, facilitation of the development of miniaturized devices and lightweighting of electrotherapeutic devices. Master Bond has put a special emphasis in enabling consistent, reproducible formulations that can be applied precisely in densely packed areas to increase yields and lower wastage. Additionally, efforts have been made to increase productivity through the use of UV cure and low temperature curing compositions.
