Medical Device Adhesives

Permabond recognizes that each application has its own unique challenges and medical device adhesive applications have a few more challenges than most. Our strength is in combining our expertise in adhesives with knowledge of the market, to support your success with our global team of technical professionals, sales engineers, and distribution partners.

Typical Applications:

Medical Device Adhesive

  • Bonding of needles to hubs
  • Bonding of filters
  • Bonding of tube sets
  • Bonding of reservoirs
  • Bonding tips to swabs
  • Bonding foam and rubber pads in assistive devices and prosthetics
  • Bonding & sealing electronic components
  • Sealing oxygen connections
  • Threadlocking for vibration resistance
  • Wire tacking
  • Bonding handles onto walking frames

Disposable Devices

Manufacturers of disposable devices such as face masks, blood collection reservoirs, filters, scalpels, needles, and catheters choose light-curable, cyanoacrylate, and epoxy adhesives to improve quality, increase performance and streamline manufacturing.

Assistive Devices & Technology

From specialty beds, wheelchairs, and other assistive devices to the electronics within them, Permabond engineering adhesives are relied upon to bond foam, rubber padding, and handle grips, retain cylindrical joints, structurally bond components, and bond, coat, and seal electronics.

Surgical & Diagnostic Equipment

Surgical and diagnostic equipment manufacturers use many anaerobic adhesives and sealants such as threadlockers, oxygen compatible sealants, retaining compounds, and form in place gaskets. Additional Permabond products are used to manufacture the electronic components of the equipment.

Medical Device Adhesive Key Features

Medical devices are diverse. They range in scope from a Q-tip to an X-ray machine. Permabond’s range of adhesives for medical devices is equally as diverse and has been carefully selected to demonstrate our capabilities. Following are few key features of popular products. Other products are available or can be formulated to best suit your requirements.   Some medical device adhesive applications require adhesives formulated to pass biocompatibility testing, others require structural bonding of equipment.  Whether you are seeking a unique UV curable adhesive to bond a state-of-the-art oxygenator or a structural bond of an MRI housing we are here to help!

Cyanoacrylates – Permabond’s 4C series has been tested for cytotoxicity and USP Class VI as they are most commonly used in tube set bonding, scalpel bonding, and other patient contact or fluid path applications. Other key features include low odor and low bloom, range of viscosities for easy dispensing, impact modified for durability, and high-temperature resistance.

UV-Curables – Whether bonding glass, plastics, or metal, Permabond UV curable adhesives offer fast cure times to speed production. Virtually invisible bond lines make the end result aesthetically pleasing.

Anaerobics – Threadlocking, pipe sealing, retaining, and form-in-place gaskets find as many uses in medical devices as in race cars. Tamper proofing, sealing equipment housings to ensure they are easily disinfected, to oxygen compatible sealants

Structural Adhesives – Permabond structural adhesives include a full line of one and two-component epoxies as well as a range of toughened acrylics. Permabond structural adhesives are relied upon for strong and durable bonds to metals, composites, and other materials. They replace welding, brazing, and soldering while sealing joints.
