Intertronics has announced a complete system of UV adhesives and LED-curing from technology partner Dymax, including the BlueWave LED Prime lamp, designed for the assembly of medical devices.

The ability of DYMAX UV adhesives to cure in seconds upon exposure to light enables faster processing and greater output, resulting in lower processing costs.

According to the company, the combination of the DYMAX BlueWave LED Prime UVA Spot Curing Lamp and complementary quick-curing adhesives brings all the benefits of LED-based curing lamps to the medical device manufacturer.

Unlike conventional spot-curing systems, this high-intensity lamp has no consumable bulbs to change, no warm-up, cool cures and constant intensity for thousands of hours.

The fast cure and limited heat emitted by the BlueWave LED Prime, which has an output of >15W/cm, is suitable for heat-sensitive substrates where thin walls may be subject to warping or stretching.

Intertronics states that one adhesive well paired with the BlueWave LED Prime is the Dymax 1020-M Ultra Light-Weld adhesive, which is fast, tack free and visible/UV light curable in less than two seconds.

Another is the complementary 1120-M-UR Ultra-Red, which is not only fast and tack free, but when cured also fluoresces bright red under low-intensity black light.

The red fluorescence contrasts well on plastics that naturally fluoresce blue in colour and greatly assists with visual inspection on bond-line areas.

These adhesives are designed for rapid bonding of a wide variety of the plastics typically used in the manufacture of medical devices such as reservoirs, tube sets, port fittings and drug delivery systems.
