The Loctite' Visible Light Cure adhesive line from Henkel Corporation has recently been granted ISO 10993 biocompatibility compliance after passing a rigorous series of biological tests. Loctite Visible Light Cure adhesives rely solely upon the visible light spectrum to deliver safe, efficient, immediate cure for a broad array of medical device assembly applications.
