Biocompatible Adhesive’s High Tg Enables High Heat Input

Adhesives supplier Panacol-Elosol GmbH has launched a new adhesive aimed at certain areas of medical device assembly, and particularly at applications with high heat input.

The company reports that contributing to the suitability of the one-component epoxy-based Vitralit 1605 for medical technology bonding, and to its versatility in high heat input applications, are its high Tg (glass transition temperature) of 150՞C, high chemical resistance and low shrinkage when fully cured, and a low thermal expansion coefficient.

According to the company, these factors help provide the high levels of stability required when bonding components at high operating temperatures. Combined with its ability to withstand sterilization, and form strong bonds with both glass and metal substrates, this made the adhesive especially suitable for medical device assembly such as bonding lens stacks or for fixing glass and rod lenses in endoscopes.
