DYMAX Introduces New Fluorescing Light-Curing Needle Bonding Adhesive
May 28, 2008
DYMAX Corporation introduces a new light-curing adhesive for bonding needles, syringes and other stainless steel cannula. MD® Medical Device Adhesive 1162-M is low viscosity for quick, air-free dispensing into needle hub cavities. DYMAX 1162-M bonds stainless steel cannula to polycarbonate, PVC, glass, and polypropylene hubs. It produces clear bonds that exceed pull forces of other available adhesives in various needle bonding applications.
MD® Medical Device Adhesive 1162-M cures upon exposure to UV/visible light in fractions of a second when exposed to high-intensity UV light, such as that produced by the DYMAX BlueWave® 200 Spot Lamp, or an electrodeless focused-beam curing system. This makes it an ideal adhesive for high-speed, high-volume, automated syringe assembly.
For in-line inspection, 1162-M fluoresces blue under low-intensity black light, which is highly compatible with scanning and vision systems typically incorporated in automated production. This product is also available with the new Ultra-Red(TM) fluorescing technology, 1162-M-UR.
DYMAX Corporation is a technology-based company specializing in the formulation, manufacture and service of advanced assembly adhesives, coatings, epoxies, masking resins, and light curing systems.
