Catheter Adhesive Provides Easy Cure Confirmation and Post-Cure Inspection

Press release date: June 26, 2014

212-CTH-UR-SC is the latest in a series of Dymax adhesives to be formulated with both Ultra-Red™ and patented See-Cure technologies. It’s designed for use in catheter assembly and offers excellent bond strength to a variety of substrates including platinum and polycarbonate, two substrates commonly used in next-generation catheter designs for the treatment of hypertension. While in its uncured state, this See-Cure adhesive is blue in color for easy verification of adhesive placement. As the product cures with sufficient exposure to UV light, its blue color transitions to colorless and provides obvious visual confirmation that the adhesive is fully cured and the bond site secure.

212-CTH-UR-SC also fluoresces bright red under low-intensity “black” light (365 nm), contrasting extremely well on plastics that naturally fluoresce blue in color. The Ultra-Red fluorescing technology allows manufacturers to incorporate automated or manual quality inspection to verify complete and accurate placement of the adhesive after cure.

Designed to be LED optimized, 212-CTH-UR-SC will cure in less than 3 seconds after exposure to LED or broad-spectrum UV light. Optimal cure time can be achieved by using this product in conjunction with a Dymax LED light-curing system, designed to provide users with significant advantages over conventional lamp-curing systems including cooler curing temperatures, more consistent cure results, lower intensity degradation over time, lower energy consumption, and reduced costs.
