DYMAX (Torrington, CT) offers DYMAX MD® 1200 series adhesives for rapid bonding of a variety of substrates found in medical devices. These adhesives are bright blue in their uncured state, making them easy to see on a variety of substrates, in deep wells, or when sandwiched between two layers of materials. The blue color allows automated vision systems to confirm adhesive placement prior to curing, for greater efficiency and less scrap. During the light-curing process, the blue color transitions to clear to indicate that the full cure has been achieved. The visual cure-indicator may be used to qualify the process and to ensure that the process remains within established control parameters. It is solvent-free and cures in seconds when exposed to high-intensity UV/visible light. It is compatible with gamma, EtO, and e-beam sterilization.
