Key Benefits of Master Bond Medical Adhesive Systems
- Biocompatibility—USP Class VI approved
- Resistance to sterilization—select compounds resist autoclaving, radiation, ethylene oxide and cold sterilants
- High bond strength to similar and dissimilar substrates
- Solvent free
- Fast curing systems
- Gap filling
- Easily automated
- Optically clear formulations
- Available in a range of hardnesses
- Thermal stability
Special compounds can withstand multiple sterilization cycles. Additionally, highly elastic, medical grade products have been developed for stress relaxation and adhering flexible substrates that are typically hard to bond to with conventional medical grade adhesives.
