Leading manufacturers of dental equipment and instruments rely on Master Bond's medical grade adhesives, sealants, coatings and potting compounds to meet key application requirements. Select formulations are designed for the assembly of diagnostic and imaging systems, surgical instruments, laboratory equipment, sterilizers and many other devices. Specific examples include dental lasers, panoramic/intra-oral X-ray machines, surgical magnifiers/microscopes, autoclaves, drills, lighting, delivery systems, electric handpieces, motors/drives, cameras for dental photography and power exam chairs. Utilized by general dentists, endodontists, orthodontists, pediatric dentists, periodontists, prosthodontists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons for primary care, in dental hospitals and secondary care institutions such as facilities for spouse/children of military personnel, these job proven products are engineered to provide the best dental care possible. Working in close collaboration with established dental device companies has enabled Master Bond to contribute polymer adhesives for innovative ergonomic shapes to enhance equipment performance.
Our comprehensive line of compounds consists of compositions which are USP Class VI approved and/or ISO 10993-5 certified for non-cytotoxicity. These chemistries include one and two component epoxies, one and two component silicones, cyanoacrylates and UV curing compounds. Cyanoacrylates and UV curing compounds have fast fixturing speed. Silicone products exhibit excellent flexibility. One and two component epoxies offer outstanding strength, thermal stability and chemical resistance. These non solvent based materials are suitable for manual or automated dispensing and can be used for bonding similar and dissimilar substrates. Many of these formulas can withstand different sterilization procedures such as repeated cycles of autoclaving and chemical sterilants.
Technologically advanced Master Bond adhesive systems have made important strides in helping develop new oral health devices. This progress has enabled health care professionals to deliver more effective, safer, quicker, more comfortable, accurate, durable, cost effective, reliable examinations, treatment, diagnosis, restoration, extraction, techniques to patients. Some noteworthy improvements range from the smart toothbrush, digital dentures, augmented reality to inter-oral cameras, teledentistry to virtual reality, 3D printing, digitized X-rays, elimination of the need for sutures. Shorter treatment times, less pain/risk of disease, fewer cavities, higher precision, detection of tooth decay in its infancy have demonstrated tremendous steps forward and most significantly a better quality of life.
