Worldwide 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. Select products also meet ISO 10993-5 cytotoxicity requirements. 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)
- Chemical sterilants including hydrogen peroxide, glutaraldehyde, peracetic acid, Cidex® and Sterrad®.
Select products will retain their performance properties even upon exposure to multiple sterilization cycles. These products are formulated for reusable medical devices. In addition, compounds also provide protection against disinfectants, detergents, isopropyl alcohol and bleaches.
