High strength, toughened UV curable system for medical grade applications
- Outstanding physical properties
- Excellent chemical resistance
- USP Class VI certified
- Meets ISO 10993-5
Master Bond UV18Med is a medical grade UV system for bonding, featuring good strength, toughness, and chemical resistance. It cures readily in 20-30 seconds when exposed to a UV light source emitting at a wavelength of 320-365 nm, with an energy output as low as 20-40 milliwatts per cm². The rate of cure depends upon the distance of the light source, its intensity, and the thickness of the section being cured. UV18Med can cure in sections up to 0.080-0.125 inches. When bonding, no more than a few thousandths of an inch are needed. It contains no solvents or diluents.
The system bonds well to a wide variety of substrates including glass, surface treated metals and plastics, such as polycarbonates and acrylics. It offers very good temperature and chemical resistance, as outlined in the chart below. Its service temperature range is -60°F to +250°F. UV18Med is an outstanding electrical insulator. Ideal for high production applications where fast fixture times and rapid curing are critical, UV18Med is used in medical applications where biocompatibility as per USP Class VI testing and/or ISO 10993-5 is needed.
- One component system, no mixing needed
- Good electrical insulator
- High bond strength
