 Master Bond’s product line includes epoxies, silicones, cyanoacrylates, and specialty solvent-based systems. These compounds can be cured at ambient and/or elevated temperatures or upon exposure to UV or LED light. Certain grades of Master Bond products fully meet the USP Class VI and ISO 10993-5 requirements. Medical-grade adhesives, sealants, coatings, and potting/encapsulation compounds need to be non-toxic and show compatibility with blood and body fluids. Additionally, they must be biologically inert. U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) Class VI and ISO 10993-5 (Cytotoxicity) are two standard tests used to determine their suitability.

 Medical Adhesives CatalogMaster Bond polymer compounds can simplify and enhance the performance of many critical medical devices. Particular formulations offer high physical strength properties and outstanding chemical resistance even when applied on dissimilar or difficult-to-bond materials. Additionally, selected products retain their desirable performance upon exposure to various sterilization procedures including autoclaving, radiation, ethylene oxide as well as cold sterilants. These products assure optimal performance even upon exposure to severe environmental conditions, as well as contact with a wide variety of fluids and occasional abuse. Each adhesive product varies in viscosity, hardness, chemical resistance, thermal stability, electrical insulation, and optical properties. Specific grades are formulated to be optically clear, non-yellowing, flexible, and dimensionally stable.

 Systems are available in convenient packaging from small to large sizes.
