Henkel’s wide selection of adhesives is known for its flexibility, strength and reliability. The company’s Loctite brand flexible light cure adhesives are no exception. Designed for medical device assembly, Loctite AA 3951 and 3953 Flexible Light Cure Adhesives offer a higher level of flexibility and a faster fixture speed than other light cure adhesives.
It’s no secret that high flexibility and strong adhesion to materials are among the many reasons medical-device manufacturers choose Loctite AA 3951 and AA 3953 for their assembly needs; however, there are additional benefits to using these adhesives. For example, they offer high fluorescence in both uncured and cured states; a colourless-to-straw appearance; a two-millimetre depth of cure after 10 seconds; a fixture speed of three seconds; a shear strength of 3,200 pounds per square inch on polycarbonate; and an ability to withstand temperatures from -54 to 149 degrees Celsius. They also offer high elongation — more than 250 per cent more elongation than other brands.
Loctite’s AA 3951 and AA 3953 adhesives can adhere to a wide range of common flexible materials. They are designed for use in the assembly of many types of disposable medical devices, including respiratory devices, catheters, fluid containers, endoscopes, and more.
