New adhesive from Vitralit UV 4050s series

Techsil has launched a new adhesive from the successful Vitralit UV 4050s series

Vitralit UV 4050 MV features medium viscosity and is said to be well suited for bonding plastics, especially for medtech applications and medical device assembly.

With 450 to 650 mPas, Vitralit UV 4050 MV is of medium viscosity. “When cured, it shows a very good flexibility and an excellent stability. This transparent adhesive has a very low shrinkage of only 2%,” said the company.

The newly developed adhesive is also claimed to provide excellent adhesion to most plastics, such as PVC, ABS, SAN and PC, as well as to stainless steel and glass. “If at least one assembly material is transparent, Vitralit UV 4050 MV will cure very quickly to produce a strong and reliable bond. UV blocked materials like polycarbonate can be cured, thanks to the adhesive’s ability to cure with visible light (>400nm)," says the company.

“Vitralit UV 4050 MV cures in seconds with UV-A and visible light. Both gas discharge lamps and LEDs are suitable to use for curing. Excellent curing results have been achieved with LED lights with a wavelength of 405 nm.”

The adhesive is currently being tested according to USP Class VI and DIN ISO 10993-4/-5 standards for use in medical applications. It is manufactured by Panacol, Techsil’s UV adhesives partner.
