VERTELLUS Portfolio of adhesives and sealants include Polycin polyols, Vorite prepolymers and Sealrite gels. Materials serve a wide variety of device manufacturers and maintain product integrity in the face of increasingly harsh environments. Beyond industrial applications, adhesives and sealants for medical devices require materials which are not only safe to use when in contact with human tissue, but also can withstand challenging environments associated with manufacturing (multiple high-temperature curing cycles) and sterilization without compromising strength or mechanical properties. When combined, materials become high-performance adhesive and sealant systems. Material components are designed and paired for applications with critical performance specifications, such as specific hardness and gel time, for dialyzers, oxygenators and catheters.
