Epoxy-based adhesive Structalit® 8801 has been added to this company’s line of medical-grade adhesives. The biocompatible adhesive was designed by manufacturers Panacol for bonding temperature-sensitive substrates as it reportedly cures quickly at low temperatures.
Structalit 8801 is a single-component adhesive based on epoxy resin. Due to its viscosity characteristics it is suited as a potting or filling material. The beige-colored adhesive reportedly has high chemical resistance against common cleaning agents used for medical devices, including isopropyl alcohol. It develops high bond strength with ceramics, metals and many plastics.
For applications in medical devices Structalit 8801 is certified according to ISO 10993-5 standards. The adhesive is 100% solvent free and compatible with common sterilization processes such as autoclaving, gamma irradiation, E-beam, and EtO.
