Typical medical device applications which use UV curing adhesives include needles and cannulas, reservoirs, tube sets and catheters. Manufacturers usually find that using UV light curing technology results in an increase in productivity. When assembling a medical device, it is critical that the selected adhesives are reliable, consistent and are able to be validated - UV light curing adhesives perform well against these criteria. These single part systems come in a range of viscosities, facilitating precise, repeatable dispensing. Curing is fully completed in seconds and within a controlled process window, meaning that immediate on-line quality assurance checks are possible.
