Master Bond UV10Med is a multi-purpose, one part UV type system for bonding, sealing and coating that features superb optical clarity and excellent physical properties as well as a very low viscosity. Most significantly it fully passes USP Class VI testing requirements. UV10Med cures readily in 20-30 seconds when exposed to a UV light source emitting at a wavelength of 320-365 nm with an energy output as low as 20-40 milliwatts per cm². The rate of cure depends upon the compound’s distance from the light source, the thickness of the section and of course the intensity of the light source. It should be noted that the system can cure in sections up to 0.020-0.025 inches. However, when bonding, sections of a few thousandths of an inch are more than adequate. Master Bond UV10Med is not oxygen inhibited and therefore does not require any special treatment in that regard. It bonds well to glass, surface treated metals and plastics such as polycarbonates and acrylics, among others. UV10Med is not only effective for bonding applications; it can also be used as a coating or sealant. UV10Med is resistant to many chemicals such as water, oils, bases and salts as well as sterilants including gamma, EtO and various chemical sterilants. The system does not contain any solvents or volatiles and has low shrinkage upon cure. Its service temperature range is -60°F to +250°F and it is an outstanding electrical insulator. Ideal for high production applications, particularly those involving disposable medical devices. UV10Med is also widely used in fiber-optic, optical, electronic and related industries.
