UV/LED Curable Material Exhibits Very Low Extractables
Dymax, a leading manufacturer of rapid-curing materials and equipment, is pleased to announce the release of 1045-M adhesive, the newest product in its renowned line of MD light-curable materials for medical device assembly.
The product is designed to bond the glass, SS, ABS, and PC substrates used to assemble prefilled syringes, single-use devices, and auto, pen, and wearable injectors. MD 1045-M adhesive is formulated to solve the challenges associated with needle orientation, material overflow, and long cure times of other technologies.
The low extractables material passes ISO 10993 cytotoxicity testing and meets essential biocompatibility standards for medical device applications. It is intended to help manufacturers increase productivity, reduce processing times, and exceed critical pull force and quality requirements.
Dymax MD 1045-M is one-part, solvent-free, and 100% solids for an eco-friendly alternative to solvent-based adhesives. In addition, the product’s low 475 centipoise viscosity flows easily onto components in 10 seconds versus the current 30+ second standard. The material also cures tack-free with UV/Broad Spectrum light and is LED-curable at 365 nm in 5 seconds for faster, environmentally friendly processing.
This low-shrinkage adhesive exhibits a glass-like cure surface, resists yellowing, and withstands autoclave cleaning and Gamma and ETO sterilization methods.
