Master Bond Leading the Way in the Manufacturing of Reusable and Disposable Medical Devices

Master Bond Inc. is a leader in the design, formulation and manufacture of adhesives, sealants, coatings and potting compounds for the assembly of both disposable and reusable medical devices. Master Bond's product line includes epoxies, urethanes, silicones, cyanoacylates, and specialty solvent based systems. These user friendly products can be cured at ambient and/or elevated temperatures or by exposure to UV light. Specific formulations fully meet the USP Class VI protocol. Master Bond's technical staff welcomes the opportunity to provide assistance to medical device manufacturers in the solution of specific assembly problems.

Master Bond adhesives, sealant, coatings and potting compounds can simplify and enhance the performance of many critical medical devices. Formulations have been developed which 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 and the recently developed cold sterilants. Specifically developed technologies for treating a variety of substrates are commercially available to assure optimal performance even upon exposure to severe environmental conditions, as well as contact with a wide variety of fluids and occasional abuse.

Master Bond has been very active in developing new Class VI type formulations for the medical device industry. Of particular interest is EP30DPMed, a flexible epoxy system with excellent bond strength and good flow for sealing and encapsulation. Another Class VI product of note is EP45HTMed, which offers the ultimate in temperature and chemical resistance. It can withstand hundreds of autoclaving cycles. In addition to those products, Master Bond now offers a Class VI two-part addition cured silicone called MasterSil 151Med. It has wide applicability as an adhesive for silicone type products and as an encapsulant or sealant for electronic devices. These compounds can be used in a wide variety of devices such as diagnostic instruments (i.e. endoscopes), surgical tools, catheters and implantables.
