MD® Medical Adhesive

1040-M

Autoclave Resistant Encapsulant, Potting and Bonding Adhesive


Dymax MD® 1040-M is a versatile autoclave resistant adhesive, coating and encapsulant resistant to 100+ cycles of sterilization. It offers extremely low water absorption (0.5%) making it ideal for surgical tools and devices that are subjected to numerous instances of sterilization, including autoclave or STERRAD (plasma).  This material is effectively used for medical sensor encapsulations and potting of electronic components, where moisture ingression may be of concern.

MD® 1040-M medical device coating is recommended for use as a coating or encapsulant on RFID chips, for surgical tools, housing assemblies and single-use or multiple use medical devices requiring 100+ cycles of autoclave. Additional applications include a variety of medical scopes and dental equipment. It also successfully bonds to stainless steel, aluminum, glass, PP/PE and printed circuit boards.    

The material is compliant with ISO 10993-5 cytotoxicity standards and is also formulated without IBOA, a known skin irritant.  It is a solvent free material that cures in seconds upon exposure to broad-spectrum UV or 365nm LED light.
