HENKEL Loctite PA 6732, Loctite PA 6682 and Loctite PA 6951 low pressure molding (LPM) materials seal and protect medical devices from moisture, temperature extremes, chemicals, vibration, impact and other environmental concerns. Using a gentle, low pressure process, materials completely encapsulate medical devices including catheters, tube sets, connectors and surgical tools, as well as sensors and switches used in medical diagnostic and monitoring equipment. All three LPM products are tested to firm’s protocols based upon ISO 10993 biocompatibility standards including skin sensitization, with certificates available on request. Products are single component, solvent-free polyamides that are solid at room temperature. Derived from natural fatty acid feed stocks obtained from renewable resources such as soy, rapeseed and sunflowers, they are green and sustainable. No harmful fumes are released during the molding process, and all products are RoHS and REACH compliant.
