One Part RTV Silicone Passes Non-Cytotoxicity Standards

This non-corrosive, translucent compound withstands many sterilization methods.

Master Bond

Designed for medical device manufacturing, MasterSil 711Med from Master Bond (Hackensack, NJ) passes ISO 10993-5 testing. It is a one part, flowable, room temperature vulcanizing (RTV) silicone which needs no mixing, and can be used for bonding, sealing, coating and form-in-place gasketing applications. This non-corrosive, translucent compound withstands many sterilization methods, including liquid sterilants, gamma radiation and EtO. Specifically:

  • MasterSil 711Med cures very quickly upon exposure to humidity or moisture.
  • Curing speed is influenced by the humidity level, with higher humidity in the applied areas resulting in a faster cure. 
  • Additionally, thinner sections cure more quickly than thicker ones. Tack-free time at 75°F and over 50% humidity is 2-5 minutes. Once cured, it delivers high temperature resistance up to 400°F. 
  • This compound is electrically insulative, with a volume resistivity greater than 1014 ohm-cm at room temperature. Featuring superior flexibility, it is able to withstand thermal cycling, vibration and shock, with an elongation measuring between 300-400%. Its Shore A hardness is 25-35.
  • MasterSil 711Med bonds well to a variety of substrates including metals, glass, ceramics, many plastics and cured silicone rubber. It is packaged in 30 cc syringes, which are equally convenient for automated and manual dispensing. 201-343-8983
