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, wheel chairs, 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, pipesealing, 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.
