Over the past three decades, medical device manufacturers have had to cope with recurrent challenges in the medical device assembly market. As new and improved ways are discovered to design and produce devices for diagnostic, treatment and prevention purposes, LOCTITE® medical device adhesives will continue to make these devices more reliable and cost-efficient to manufacture.

Safety First Through Manufacturing and Quality Controls

Our adhesive solutions meet the specific process requirements and biocompatibility for each type of device manufactured.

Helping You Meet Your Challenges With Flexible Medical Device Adhesives

Our medical adhesive portfolio includes a depth of technologies that can be used in many different applications for medical device manufacturing.

Applications

You’ll find LOCTITE® flexible medical device adhesives in a wide range of medical devices including:

CO2 Absorbents

Through the acquisition of Darex Packaging Technologies, Henkel also acquired the SODASORB® product range, including CO2 absorbents which have been a trusted and essential carbon dioxide absorbent for decades. They help to safely and efficiently remove CO2 from anesthesia systems, diving chambers and re-breathers, and industrial safety equipment. SODASORB® absorbent is intended for medical purposes to remove carbon dioxide from gases in the breathing circuit in systems such as anesthesia and respiratory therapy equipment.

SODASORB® absorbents are available in two formulations for medical use: SODASORB® for traditional flow rate systems and SODASORB® LF for low and ultra-low flow anesthesia systems. In diving applications SODASORB® HP is designed for high-performance removal of CO2 from industrial hyperbaric diving chambers as well as military and recreational re-breather equipment. Additionally, SODASORB® is an effective absorbent for industrial rescue equipment such as mine safety refuges and escape re-breathers.
