Master Bond (Hackensack, NJ) EP40Med, a two part epoxy system, combines toughness and a low tensile modulus while still providing a relatively high lap shear strength. It meets the requirements of ISO 10993-5 testing and is therefore considered to be non-cytotoxic. This compound can be used for bonding, sealing, coating and encapsulating.
EP40Med resists sterilization to gamma, EtO, chemicals, and liquid disinfectants. It is recommended for use in medical device manufacturing and repair for both disposable and reusable instruments. EP40Med is an effective adhesive for applications where toughness and flexibility along with good structural strength are needed. The formulation bonds well to polycarbonates, acrylics, metals, ceramics and composites.
