Master Bond Inc., Hackensack, NJ, announces that its UV10TKMed can be employed in a wide variety of applications involving both disposable and reusable medical device manufacturing. It offers high temperature resistance and the ability to withstand repeated sterilizations along with a rapid UV curing mechanism. This one-part epoxy system is optically clear and has a very high glass transition temperature that exceeds 140°C. It resists repeated sterilization, including radiation, ethylene oxide, chemical sterilants, and especially autoclaving. This higher viscosity UV system for bonding, sealing, and coating passes USP Class VI testing and meets ISO 10993-5 for cytotoxicity. UV10TKMed cures readily in 20-30 seconds when exposed to a UV light source emitting at a wavelength of 320-365 nm. It can cure in sections up to ¼ inch. However, when bonding, sections of a few thousandths of an inch are more than adequate.
Master Bond UV10TKMed is not oxygen inhibited and does not require any special treatment in that regard. It bonds well to glass, composites, surface-treated metals, and plastics such as polycarbonates and acrylics, among others. UV10TKMed is not only effective for bonding applications; it can also be used as a coating or sealant. It is also a superlative electrical insulator, and is available in syringe applicators, ½ pint, pint, quart, gallon, and 5 gallon containers.
