Adhesives for medical assembly

Adhesives, protective materials and processing equipment for medical device assembly is the title of the latest brochure from Intertronics. As the title implies, the new brochure is focused on ISO 10993 and USP Class VI adhesives and protective materials - and associated equipment – for medical device assembly.

Products covered include Dymax medical grade adhesives, coatings and masking materials, Opti-tec epoxy adhesives, medical grade cyanoacrylates and the Polytec PT range of two-part adhesives. Intertronics also highlights its range of precision dispensing/dosing equipment, dispensing robots, micro dispensing jetting technology, planetary mixing/degassing systems and the flowplus16 dosing validation sensor.

From its long history of working with companies in the medical device sector, Intertronics claims to be familiar with the sector's demanding requirements, including the assurance that validated assembly processes are verifiably and consistently under control.

The materials featured in the brochure are typically used in the manufacture of catheters, tube sets, reservoirs, respiratory masks, laryngeal mask airways, resuscitation tubes, blood filters, syringes, needles and oxygenators.

The effectiveness of these materials in the assembly process is determined in part by the equipment used to dispense and, in the case of some, cure them. Intertronics' ethos of specifying and supplying complementary material and equipment technologies can further facilitate efficiency, reliability and repeatability. This includes the latest UV LED technology which can provide a number of benefits over broad spectrum UV curing.

Intertronics managing director Peter Swanson explained: "The medical device manufacturing industry is extremely important to us and we have developed a portfolio of adhesives, protective materials and processing equipment to meet its needs. As well as products for bonding the plastics, metals, ceramics, glass and other substrates frequently used in medical devices, we offer protective materials for coating, sealing, gasketing and temporary masking – including those that offer real time visual indication of process completion. This, together with our technical expertise developed over many years, means that customers can be safe in the knowledge that these products will work every time."

The catalogue can be downloaded from the website.
