Dymax Corporation has published a new white paper titled “Ensuring The Reliability of Disposable Syringes with Light-Cure Adhesives.” It addresses the challenges of disposable medical syringe production involving permanently and safely attaching the stainless steel cannula to the plastic hub, saving time and money to manufacturers.
Most hub-to-cannula designs today use epoxies, cyanoacrylates, or light-cure adhesives to ensure a high strength, permanent bond. Poor hub-to-cannula assembly could result in leakage of bodily fluids and medication or catastrophic device failure situations that could be dangerous to the patient and medical professional. This white paper explains how a proper design incorporating the right light-curable adhesive delivers a well-sealed syringe assembly that will not allow fluids to leak or migrate and will safeguard the cannula from moving or releasing during use.
Dymax Corporation develops innovative oligomer, adhesive, coating, dispensing, and light-curing systems for applications in a wide range of markets. 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. Major markets include aerospace, appliance, automotive, electronics, industrial, medical device, and metal finishing.
