"Elkem continues to invest in silicone solutions for implantable medical device manufacturers, empowering them with the choice of a fully integrated implant grade silicone supplier, committed to transparent partnership and development for the long term," says Mike Goglia, market manager, Healthcare Americas.
"We are not only focused on providing proven solutions that have been used for decades, but also innovations that enable advancements in the standards of patient care," says Goglia. Elkem's tin-free, implant grade single component silicone adhesive, Silbione® Biomedical ADH1 M200, is the only tin-free product of its kind available on the market and offers faster cure than traditional adhesives, requiring no heat or humidity chamber for cure for easy processability and improved productivity. This tin-free adhesive is ideal for assembling medical devices that require high strength bonding to substrates such as silicone, polyester, metals, and polyurethane.
