ISO 10993 approved respiratory device adhesives cure upon exposure to UV/Vis light for fast assembly of breathing circuits.

Respiratory Device Assembly

Light-Curable Respiratory Device Adhesives

Quickly Assemble Airway Management Devices

The “MSK” line of respiratory device adhesives quickly bonds airway management devices such as anesthesia masks, resuscitator bags, and breathing circuits. The products are solvent free and ISO 10993-5 Cytotoxicity approved and cure in seconds upon exposure to UV/Visible light. The materials form strong, flexible bonds to a variety of substrates, as well as highly plasticized plastics. Dymax respiratory device adhesives are are also compatible with gamma, EtO, and E-Beam sterilization.

“On demand” bonding at line speeds greater than 20 feet per minute (6.1 meters per minute) is possible, providing increased throughput without additional labor or line expansion. In addition, the materials are easily dispensed by syringe, dipping well, screen print, or spray, and are available in a range of viscosities.

Some adhesives fluoresce bright red or blue upon exposure to low-intensity “black” light making them ideal for high-speed automated inspection systems. Products that are LED curable, moisture resistant,  flexible, and can form tack-free bonds to a variety of plastics are available.

Bondable substrates include:

  • ABS
  • PET
  • PS
  • PVC
  • SEBS

For manufacturers that require both confirmation of cure and fluorescing capability, products formulated with Encompass® technology are available. Encompass combines Dymax patented See-Cure and Ultra-Red® fluorescing into one product. Adhesives formulated with See-Cure are bright blue in the uncured state, making the them highly visible on substrates. When cured with sufficient light energy, the adhesives become colorless, indicating the material is fully cured. The Ultra-Red component enables the adhesives to fluoresce bright red under black light for easy quality inspection.
