LED-Curable Adhesive

Dymax Corp.Request Info
 
Dymax Ultra-Red 1120-M-UR is an ultrafast, tack-free, LED-curable plastic bonding medical device adhesive formulated for fast, on-demand cure with the company’s new BlueWave LED Prime UVA spot-curing lamp. This adhesive is designed for rapid bonding of a wide variety of plastics typically used in the manufacture of medical devices such as oxygenators, blood pumps, tube sets, port fittings and drug delivery devices. The fast cure and limited heat emitted by the UVA lamp provide a system suitable for heat-sensitive substrates, where thin walls may be subject to warping or stretching. The adhesive fluoresces bright red under low-intensity “black” light (365 nm). The bright-red fluorescence contrasts well on plastics that naturally fluoresce blue in color (like PVC) and assists with visual inspection of the bond-line area. The medical device adhesive cures upon exposure to light.

GLOSSARY
adhesive
An intermolecular substance that serves to hold materials together. Two types are used in the optical industry: one, which must be transparent and colorless, to cement lenses together; and a general-purpose adhesive for bonding prisms and other glass parts to their metallic supports.
black light
Radiation from the invisible (usually ultraviolet) region of the spectrum.
exposure
In optics, the total radiant energy incident on a surface-per-unit area. It is equal to the integral over time of the radiant flux density. Also known as radiant exposure.
fluorescence
The emission of light or other electromagnetic radiation of longer wavelengths by a substance as a result of the absorption of some other radiation of shorter wavelengths, provided the emission continues only as long as the stimulus producing it is maintained. In other words, fluorescence is the luminescence that persists for less than about 10-8 s after excitation.
light
Electromagnetic radiation detectable by the eye, ranging in wavelength from about 400 to 750 nm. In photonic applications light can be considered to cover the nonvisible portion of the spectrum which includes the ultraviolet and the infrared.
