Medical Adhesive

Dymax, Torrington, CT, has introduced an LED UV and broad-spectrum light-curable adhesive for bonding COC/COP film laminates and other difficult-to-bond-to plastics used in the assembly of in vitro diagnostics (IVD), lab-on-a-chip (LOC), and other point-of-care medical devices. MD ® 1172-M-UR may also be useful to manufacturers involved with the design of COVID-19 rapid diagnostic applications. The moisture-resistant adhesive is soft and flexible with a durometer of A70 and has a viscosity of 1,100 cP for improved wetting. It is formulated to enable simple visual post-cure quality inspection of the bond line area. After cure, when exposed to low-intensity black light (365 nm), the material fluoresces bright red, making it easy to see on plastics that naturally fluoresce blue in color, like PVC.
