Medical Device Applications
For disposable medical device assemblies, strong, reliable, sterilization resistant and biocompatible medical liquid adhesives are required for bonding and sealing non-equal materials in various joint geometries. Henkel offers an extensive portfolio of adhesive technologies that are suitable for the substrates used in medical devices, such as plastics Polycarbonate, PVC, ABS, COC, PP, PE, PMMA, Polyurethane, or flexible materials like silicones, TPEs and elastomers, as well as metals like stainless-steel. To enable flexibility in part design and manufacturing processes, these adhesive technologies range from room temperature curing adhesives and heat curing technologies to UV-bulb cure and LED light cure adhesives which help simplify manufacturing processes and reduce costs.
