This product fluoresces bright red under low-intensity black light (365 nm). The bright red fluorescence contrasts extremely well on plastics that naturally fluoresce blue in color (like PVC), and greatly assists with visual inspection of the bond-line area. Dymax MD® Medical Device Adhesives contain no nonreactive solvents and cure upon exposure to light. Their ability to cure in seconds enables faster processing, greater output, and lower processing costs. When cured with Dymax light-curing spot lamps, focused-beam lamps, or flood lamps, they deliver optimum speed and performance for medical device assembly. Dymax lamps offer the optimum balance of UV and visible light for the fastest, deepest cures. This product is in full compliance with the RoHS Directives 2002/95/EC and 2003/11/EC.

Actual cure time typically is 3 to 5 times fixture time. The graphs below show the increase in depth of cure as a function of exposure time at two different lamp intensities. A 9.5 mm [0.37 in] diameter specimen was cured in a polypropylene mold and cooled to room temperature. It was then released from the mold and the cure depth was measured. 2000-EC (50 mW/cm2)B Fixture Time or Belt Speed A <1 sec 5000-EC (200 mW/cm2)B <1 sec BlueWave® 75 (5.0 W/cm2)B 0.2 sec BlueWave® 200 (10 W/cm2)B <0.2 sec UVCS Conveyor with one 5000-EC (200 mW/cm2)C UVCS Conveyor with Fusion F300S (2.5 W/cm2)C A B C 8.0 m/min [26 ft/min] >8.5 m/min [>28 ft/min] Curing through light-blocking substrates may require longer cure times if they obstruct wavelengths used for light curing (320-450 nm for UV/Visible light curing and 320-400 nm for UV-light-only curing). These fixture times/speeds are typical for curing thin films through 100% lighttransmitting substrates. Intensity was measured over the UVA range (320-395 nm) using a Dymax ACCU-CAL™ 50 Radiometer.

Higher intensities or longer cures (up to 5x) generally will not degrade Dymax light-curable adhesives. Depth of Cure BlueWave 200 (10 W/cm2) 6 5 Depth (mm) Dymax recommends that customers employ a safety factor by curing longer and/or at higher intensities than required for full cure. Although Dymax Application Engineering can provide technical support and assist with process development, each customer ultimately must determine and qualify the appropriate curing parameters required for their unique application. 2 4 3 2 1 0 0 0.5 1 1.5 2 Time (seconds) 2.5 3 3.5 MD® MEDICAL DEVICE ADHESIVES 1180-M-UR Product Data Sheet OPTIMIZING PERFORMANCE AND HANDLING BIOCOMPATIBILITY 1. This product cures with exposure to UV and visible light. Exposure to ambient and artificial light should be kept to a minimum before curing. Dispensing components including needles and fluid lines should be 100% light blocking, not just UV blocking. 2. All bond surfaces should be clean and free from grease, mold release, or other contaminants prior to dispensing the adhesive. 3. Cure speed is dependent upon many variables, including lamp intensity, distance from the light source, required depth of cure, bond gap, and percent light transmission of the substrate. Polymerized Dymax MD® Medical Device adhesives are biocompatibility tested in accordance with ISO 10993 and/or USP Class VI. The completed tests are listed on each product data sheet. Copies of the test reports are available upon request. In all cases, it is the user’s responsibility to determine and validate the suitability of these adhesives in the intended medical device. These adhesives have not been tested for prolonged or permanent implantation, and are only intended for use in short-term (<29 days) or single-use disposabledevice applications. Dymax does not authorize their use in long-term implant applications. Customers using these materials for such applications do so at their own risk and take full responsibility for ensuring product safety and biocompatibility. 4. Oxygen in the atmosphere may inhibit surface cure. Surfaces exposed to air may require high-intensity (>100 mW/cm2) UV light to produce a dry surface cure. Flooding the bond area with an inert gas, such as nitrogen, can also reduce the effects of oxygen inhibition. 5. Parts should be allowed to cool after cure before testing and subjecting to any loads. 6. In rare cases, stress cracking may occur in assembled parts. Three options may be explored to eliminate this problem. One option is to heat anneal the parts to remove molded-in stresses. A second option is to open the gap between mating parts to reduce stress caused by an interference fit. The third option is to minimize the amount of time the liquid adhesive remains in contact with the substrate(s) prior to curing. 7. 8. Light curing generally produces some heat. If necessary, cooling fans can be placed in the curing area to reduce the heating effect on components. At the point of curing, an air exhaust system is recommended to dissipate any heat and vapors formed during the curing process. DISPENSING THE ADHESIVE This material may be dispensed with a variety of manual and automatic applicators or other equipment as required. Questions relating to dispensing and curing systems for specific applications should be referred to Dymax Application Engineering. CLEANUP Uncured material may be removed from dispensing components and parts with organic solvents. Cured material will be impervious to many solvents and difficult to remove. Cleanup of cured material may require mechanical methods of removal. PERFORMANCE AFTER TEMPERATURE EXPOSURE Dymax light-curable materials typically have a lower thermal limit of -54˚C [-65˚F] and an upper limit of 150˚C [300˚F]. Many Dymax products can withstand temperatures outside of this range for short periods of time. Please contact Dymax Application Engineering for assistance. STERILIZATION Compatible sterilization methods include gamma irradiation and ethylene oxide. Sterilization by autoclaving may be limited to certain applications. It remains the user’s obligation to ascertain the effect of sterilization on the cured adhesive. STORAGE AND SHELF LIFE Store the material in a cool, dark place when not in use. Do not expose to light. This product may polymerize upon prolonged exposure to ambient and artificial light. Keep covered when not in use. This material has a 12-month shelf life from date of shipment, unless otherwise specified, when stored between 10˚C [50˚F] and 32˚C [90˚F] in the original, unopened container. GENERAL INFORMATION This product is intended for industrial use only. Keep out of the reach of children. Avoid breathing vapors. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothing. Wear impervious gloves. Repeated or continuous skin contact with uncured material may cause irritation. Remove material from skin with soap and water. Never use organic solvents to remove material from skin and eyes. For more information on the safe handling of this material, please refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet before use.
