Master Bond is a leader in the design, formulation and manufacture of adhesives, sealants, coatings and potting / encapsulation compounds for the assembly of both disposable and reusable medical devices. These uniquely designed products offer designers and manufacturers of medical products the level of reliability and performance essential for the many different operating conditions encountered in use. These include special formulations that are biocompatible and are resistant to various types of sterilization.

Master Bond’s product line includes epoxies, urethanes, silicones, cyanoacrylates, and specialty solvent-based systems. These user-friendly products can be cured at ambient and/or elevated temperatures or upon 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.

Adhesives, sealants, coatings and potting / encapsulation compounds for medical devices

Master Bond adhesives, sealants, coatings and potting / encapsulation 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 ensure optimal performance even upon exposure to severe environmental conditions, as well as contact with a wide variety of fluids and occasional abuse.

Master Bond offers a complete array of biocompatible adhesives to serve the assembly needs of medical device engineers.
Room-temperature curing epoxy resists sterilization.
UV-curable, no-mix epoxy resin system with exceptional sealing and gap-filling properties.
Master Bond's innovative packaging solutions will maximize productivity, reduce waste and maintain consistently high product reliability.
USP Class VI approved UV curable adhesive offers superior adhesion to metals, glass, ceramics and most plastics.

Medical-grade adhesives

Master Bond is proud of being at the forefront of developing new and innovative products in the medical device industry. Of particular interest is EP42HT-2ND2, a high viscosity, non-drip medical-grade adhesive that complies with the testing requirements of USP Class VI plastics and is capable of withstanding repeated sterilizations including radiation, chemicals and steam.

Epoxies, silicone compounds and UV-curable resin compounds for medical devices

Also noteworthy is EP3HTSMed, a one component, fast curing, silver filled electrically conductive epoxy system featuring high shear strength and good temperature resistance. The newly developed MasterSil151Med is a two component low viscosity silicone compound for high-performance casting, potting and encapsulation. And UV18MED is a one component, high strength, flexible UV-curable resin compound with outstanding chemical and water resistance.

UV-curable adhesives for medical design engineers

Master Bond’s complete line of UV-curable polymers includes epoxies and urethanes, which can be used as adhesives, coatings, sealants, encapsulants, and potting compounds. Specific grades are formulated to be optically clear, non-yellowing, flexible, and high strength. UV-curable adhesives cure extremely quickly, and upon exposure to a commercially available ultraviolet light source, cures can be achieved within a couple of seconds. These compounds cure at ambient temperatures and require no mixing. Each UV adhesive and coating product varies in viscosity, hardness, chemical resistance, thermal stability, electrical insulation and optical properties.

For the UV curable adhesives, sealants and coatings, Master Bond offers a ‘double light barrier’ packaging system where the UV compound is packaged in a light-blocking black applicator and the syringe itself is sealed in a black plastic pouch until ready for use. All packaging processes occur in a totally light-free environment, thereby greatly lengthening shelf life at ambient temperatures and preventing premature contamination of the compounds.

Master Bond provides one-on-one personal technical support and will recommend the product that will optimally match the specific design requirements of any medical device.

Biocompatible Epoxies for Medical Device Manufacturing

Microelectronics devices composed of integrated circuits are complex and pose many engineering challenges. A careful design must be employed to allow heat to be dissipated from the device and mitigate thermally induced stresses.

Low Viscosity, Electrically Conductive Epoxy Meets ISO 10993-5 Cytotoxicity Standards

Master Bond EP4G-80Med is a one-part epoxy designed for use in the assembly of medical devices. This system is formulated with a non-metallic, graphite filler, which leads to good thermal and electrical conductivity. It possesses a thermal conductivity of 1.44-1.73 W/(m•K) and a volume resistivity of 50-100 ohm-cm. Furthermore, it complies with the ISO 10993-5 guidelines and is considered to be non-cytotoxic.
