Your specific medical device assembly application is like no other. It has a specific material requirement, performance standard, margin objective, production yield target, and labor allocation. CyabondŽ 's multi-disciplined team of engineers, product specialists and chemists will provide multiple solution options detailing the adhesive, its dispensing, integration into production, curing, and post-launch evaluation. CyabondŽ knows the commercial and technical demands of the medical device market and is ready to help you respond.

CyabondŽ 's 15-year history of providing application-specific specialty adhesive solutions has created thousands of formulations and thousands of manufacturing successes. That's a good start, but there's more to do.

Needle Bonding
CyabondŽ 's experience in formulating needle bonding adhesives can help bring a new product to market faster, or even reduce an existing product's cost of production. 

CyabondŽ will evaluate your needle bonding application and formulate an adhesive specific to your application considering several factors, such as: hub material and design, line speed, degree of automation, in-line testing, packaging and end use. 

There are three primary hub design configurations described here. Whether your specific hub design is similar or completely new, let CyabondŽ assist you in making your needle bonding application a design and production success.

  • Cylindrical Through Hole Design
    Also known as Straight Line design, this design is common in glass syringe barrels. CyabondŽ needle bonding adhesives secure the cannula byuniformly filling the gap between the hub wall and the needle. CyabondŽ needle bonding adhesives can be formulated with multiple viscosities to allow the use of different gauge cannulae within a standard hub. Bond length must also be considered if the hub is constructed of bond-resistant materials like polypropylene. 
  • Cylindrical Through Hole with Adhesive Well Design
    A variation of the standard Cylindrical Through Hole design, this design integrates a flared opening at the distal end to create a well for the adhesive. CyabondŽ 's formulation expertise will maximize bonding strength at both the hub wall as well as the cannula. This design reduces the adhesive's viscosity constraints while increasing the range of cannulae that can fit within the same hub. 
  • Cylindrical Through Hole with Annular Ring Design
    Critical to many needle bonding applications is pullout strength. The annular ring design molds rings into the hub, that when filled with CyabondŽ adhesives, lock the needle in place, increasing pullout strength. The annular ring design, combined with CyabondŽ needle bonding adhesives can eliminate costly hub and cannula surface treatment.

Tube Set Bonding
Traditional tube set bonding methods have used solvent adhesives to bond the mating tube set. In select applications this still may be the preferred method. As line speeds continue to be increased and customer quality levels grow more demanding, CyabondŽ has responded with the development of formulations for tube set bonding that eliminate the concerns relating to solvents such as bonding dissimilar materials, stress cracking, and environmental factors. 

CyabondŽ 's solvent-free formulations accelerate curing times, reduce stress cracking and allow for the bonding of dissimilar tubing and connectors. CyabondŽ will evaluate your tube set bonding application and provide solvent-free adhesive solutions and production integration scenarios based on your product's individual criteria. 

CyabondŽ can help reduce the costs of tube set bonding by increasing materials selection choices, bond efficacy, and line speed. Let CyabondŽ assist you in making your tube set bonding application a design and production success. 

Catheter Components Bonding
As end-use applications for catheters continue to expand, catheter design and manufacturing must keep pace. CyabondŽ 's broad line of medical device adhesives will meet such challenges as bonding dissimilar substrates, minimizing multiple adhesive applications and reducing curing times.

CyabondŽ 's medical device adhesive expertise brings solutions to the complexity of catheter assembly. Beyond the conventional formulations in UV/Visible Light cure adhesives CyabondŽ has successfully integrated epoxies, cyanoacrylates, and silicone into catheter bonding applications. Knowing the importance of production efficiency and end-user acceptance keeps CyabondŽ focused on your return-on-investment. 

Balloon Bonding
Adhesives used in catheter assembly applications must hold up to extreme conditions including dramatic temperature and pressure requirements. CyabondŽ 's cyanoacrylate formulations are perfectly suited to catheter applications; eliminating the chance of UV curing compromising the balloons integrity. When PET balloons are used CyabondŽ 's UV adhesives can be used to accelerate curing. 

Lumen Termination
CyabondŽ 's formulation advancements in flexible UV/Visible light cure adhesives can reduce the two-step application often required with urethane processes to a single UV/VL adhesive application. In cases where the substrate may prevent UV/VL application, CyabondŽ 's flexible, two-part epoxy adhesives are perfectly suited to provide high-quality bonds in a single application. 

Reservoir Bonding
CyabondŽ 's reservoir bonding adhesive formulations have been proven to significantly increase line speeds, part quality and workplace safety by displacing joining processes such as solvents or ultrasonic welding. CyabondŽ 's UV cure adhesives provide superior bond strength particularly with rigid substrates common with reservoirs, cardiotomies, oxygenators, heat exchangers, and filters. If components are constructed of UV blocking plastics, CyabondŽ 's medical device UV/Visible light adhesives, or cyanoacrylates deliver the same adhesion performance and curing speeds.
