Selecting an adhesive for a medical device application can be challenging. Learn how to navigate the selection process while keeping in mind service conditions, desired properties and processing constraints. Find out more about two of the most important industry standards for adhesives used in medical devices, which are USP Class VI for biocompatibility and ISO 10993-5 for cytotoxicity. We will also discuss how different types of sterilization techniques, such as autoclaving, ethylene oxide, gamma radiation, and other methods, factor into choosing a suitable adhesive.
We will delve into some real life, published case studies where bonding, sealing, coating, and encapsulating compounds have been successfully utilized in various medical device applications and conclude the webinar with a live question and answer session.
