Low-Pressure Molding Materials

Henkel, Düsseldorf, Germany, has introduced three new low-pressure molding (LPM) materials designed to seal and protect medical devices from moisture, temperature extremes, chemicals, vibration, impact, and other environmental concerns. Using a gentle, low-pressure process, Loctite PA 6732, Loctite PA 6682, and Loctite PA 6951 completely encapsulate medical devices including catheters, tube sets, connectors, and surgical tools, as well as sensors and switches used in medical diagnostic and monitoring equipment. All three LPM products are tested to protocols based on ISO 10993 biocompatibility standards, including skin sensitization, with certificates available on request. The single-component, solvent-free polyamides are solid at room temperature.
