High quality Master Bond adhesives, sealants, coatings, and potting/encapsulation compounds are frequently employed for the construction of medical monitoring devices. Utilization of our state-of-the-art polymeric formulations has accelerated the progress in improving the capabilities of these monitors, and ensuring reliable outcomes for patients. Monitoring devices assembled using Master Bond products provide healthcare professionals the accuracy, precision, efficiency, seamless connectivity, touch sensing technology, intuitive user interface, and longevity to deliver the best standards of care. The following medical monitoring equipment are examples for select Master Bond products:
- Vital signs monitors
- Stress test equipment
- Fetal monitors
- Holter monitor
- EEG system
- Respiratory polygraphs
- Blood gas analyzers
- Breathing monitors
- Body temperature monitoring
- Cancer therapy monitoring
- PFT systems
In order to satisfy the needs of design engineers, Master Bond has on numerous occasions developed custom liquid, paste, and film adhesives to meet challenging requirements. This has helped make important contributions for medical monitoring device manufacturers to produce lightweight, mobile, energy efficient, multi-functional, wireless monitors for fast, remote network integration. Measurement of key patient parameters through medical monitoring has enabled physicians to make immediate decisions for diagnostic purposes or therapeutic interventions when necessary.
Master Bond offers various glob top coatings, die attach adhesives, underfill encapsulants, electrically insulative & thermally conductive systems, electrically conductive silver filled products, and low stress silicones for use in such applications. Our most durable toughened compositions resist impact from multiple drops, abrasion, and fluid ingress.
Master Bond's variety of formulas is unrivaled as is our reputation for technical expertise. We offer a line of various biocompatible one/two component epoxies, silicones, UV/visible light curing, cyanoacrylate, and elastomeric adhesives that are USP Class VI and / or ISO 10993-5 certified for use in the medical industry. Here are some examples of Master Bond epoxies, which are successfully being used for manufacturing medical monitoring devices:
