Soft Light-Curable Adhesive Offers Excellent Adhesion to COC Laminate Film
LED Optimized for Lower Energy Consumption and Reduced Costs
(PresseBox) (Wiesbaden, )Cyclic olefin polymers/copolymers (COP/COC) have become popular choices in the point-of-care device industry because of their many advantages including high strength, hardness, low water absorption, and excellent biocompatibility. Dymax Corporation’s 1072-M MD® adhesive is a new UV/broad-spectrum-cured adhesive specifically designed for bonding COC/COP film laminates and other difficult-to-bond-to polymers.
Designed to be LED optimized, 1072-M will cure in less than 3 seconds after exposure to LED or broad-spectrum UV light. Optimal cure time can be achieved by using this product in conjunction with a Dymax LED light-curing system, designed to provide users with significant advantages over conventional lamp-curing systems including cooler curing temperatures, more consistent cure results, lower intensity degradation over time, lower energy consumption, and reduced costs.
1072-M is soft and flexible with a durometer of A58. It also has a viscosity of 1,000 cP for improved wetting, making it ideally suited for interfacial bonding requirements. The product is ISO 10993-5 Cytotoxicity approved.
In addition to adhesives and coatings, Dymax also offers high-performance oligomers as well as a variety of dispensing and light-curing equipment. The company’s products are perfectly matched to work seamlessly with each other, providing design engineers with tools to dramatically improve manufacturing efficiency and reduce costs.
