Dymax Launches Light Curable Adhesives for Medical Wearables Assembly Dymax launches 2000-MW, a series of light-curable adhesives specifically developed to address customer requirements and market trends within the rapidly evolving medical device wearables market.

The new range of structural medical adhesives has passed ISO 10993-10 for sensitization and irritation. Free from TPO, a material of concern, and made without IBOA, a known skin irritant, these adhesives address device manufacturers’ concerns about skin proximity and sensitivity.

Adhesive offers Protection During Sterilization

Designed for bonding SS, PC, PI, PVC, TPU, and low-surface-energy substrates, the adhesives are also engineered for reliability with excellent adhesion and aging performance. The 2000-MW series cures with broad-spectrum light energy and some products provide durable protection during autoclave sterilization.

Staying true to our core values while addressing the evolving needs of our customers, Dymax continues to develop innovative light-curable adhesives. Removing materials of concern with the introduction of the 2000-MW series of products is our first step toward the elimination of problematic ingredients,” said Mike Ford, global business development director, medical for Dymax.

These adhesives are environmentally friendly, one-part formulations, solvent-free, and meet ISO 10993-5 cytotoxicity biocompatibility requirements. Typical applications include devices worn in close proximity to the skin such as continuous glucose monitors, large volume injectors, patient monitoring devices, and pain management devices. Fluorescing grades are available for high-speed automated vision systems used for quality control purposes.
