Medical Adhesives Market


The adhesives used in the medical applications are one of the important segments in the chemical industry. Adhesives are the critical components in the design and manufacture of the majority of medical devices. Traditionally adhesives are two types such as sterile disposables and non-sterile reusables. Sterile disposables are devices such as syringes, catheter, and oxygenators which are directly contact with blood and body fluids. Because of such contact, the adhesive used in sterile devices must be tested by the manufacturer and must pass toxicity testing. Non sterile resuables are generally external devices that do not come into direct contact with patients. Generally adhesives are categorized as structural, Non-structural and Pressure sensitive. The right Adhesive should bond to the substrates and provides a strong bond for the application requirements.
