Medical device assembly applications vary widely and commonly involve bonding many different materials, like plastic, glass and metal. Adhesives for these applications must be compatible with direct or indirect contact with the body, and may be required to withstand multiple sterilizations. Certain substrates or materials may even require the use of primers or other surface preparation in order to achieve satisfactory adhesion; these adhesives are designed for general purpose bonding on all types of substrates. Whether you need a bonding agent with low bloom or low odor characteristics, or your application requires varying degrees of viscosity, shear strength, and fixture time, our line of instant and light-cured adhesives deliver hassle-free bonding.

Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

What is a cyanoacrylate adhesive?

Cyanoacrylate is a clear, strong-bonding adhesive that dries very quickly. When a cyanoacrylate is in its uncured form, it is known as a monomer. After it is cured, it is known as a polymer (or plastic) resin. It is more commonly known as “super glue,” but the H.B. Fuller medical cyanoacrylate products offer customers a number of distinct features. The H.B. Fuller technical data sheets provide greater detail of technical specifications and product features.

Are there different types of cyanoacrylates?

Yes, the 4 major types of cyanoacrylate are:

  • 1. methyl 2-cyanoacrylate
  • 2. ethyl-2-cyanoacrylate (generically known as superglue)
  • 3. H.B. Fuller offers n-butyl cyanoacrylate (used in medical applications)
  • 4. H.B. Fuller offers 2-octyl cyanoacrylate (also used in medical applications)

How should I prepare the materials (or substrates) to be bonded before applying H.B. Fuller cyanoacrylates?

Substrate surfaces should be clean and dry before applying H.B. Fuller cyanoacrylates. All dirt, dust, oil, etc. should be removed.
