Master Bond's Optically Clear, Medical Grade Epoxy Features a High Glass Transition Temperature
One component, high viscosity UV system for high performance bonding, sealing and coating, features superb physical properties, high glass transition temperature and sterilization resistance. It also passes USP Class VI testing.
This one part system is optically clear and has a very high glass transition temperature that exceeds 140°C. It resists repeated sterilization, including radiation, ethylene oxide, chemical sterilants and especially autoclaving. UV10TKMed’
UV10TKMed cures readily in 20-30 seconds when exposed to a UV light source emitting at a wavelength of 320-365 nm with an energy output as low as 20-40 milliwatts per cm². The rate of cure depends upon the compound’
Master Bond UV10TKMed is not oxygen inhibited and therefore does not require any special treatment in that regard. It bonds well to glass, composites, surface treated metals and plastics such as polycarbonates and acrylics, among others. UV10TKMed is not only effective for bonding applications;
This UV system has a shelf life of 6 months in original, unopened containers with no exposure to light. It is available in syringe applicators, ½ pint, pint, quart, gallon and 5 gallon containers.
Master Bond Thermally Stable Adhesives
UV10TKMed can be employed in a wide variety of application scenarios involving both disposable and reusable medical device manufacturing. It offers high temperature resistance and the ability to withstand repeated sterilizations along with a rapid UV curing mechanism.
