Medical adhesives are crucial in medical device development, especially for consideration in devices geared for high production where hardware fasteners are not a viable option. In this initial part 1 of 2 series from Henkel Loctite, responsible for medical adhesives specified by medical device manufacturers for over two decades with products tested to the industry’s most comprehensive ISO 10993 biocompatibility standards, we will focus on design aspects to consider for medical device development. Topics include adhesive joint design (e.g. the forces and failure modes), bonding plastics and adhesive/plastic selection (e.g. surface treatments and exercise in using the design guide), resistance to both ethylene oxide (EO) and gamma sterilization, as well as biocompatibility testing. This discussion is designed to equip those in medical device development to increase product quality and reliability, and to avert potential preventable failures rooted in the understanding of adhesives in medical device design.
Kyle Eales is the Medical Focus Account Manager (Western Region, including CR, and MX border towns), and started her nearly three decade career with Henkel Loctite as an OEM Territory Sales Representative for Orange & San Diego Counties and Tijuana, MX, and then also been an OEM Specialist and Market Manager positions. She has received multiple Henkel awards for her services, including Top NA Growth and Excellence for Customers Awards. She also has years of experience calling on large medical device manufacturers and Design Centers, as well as startups, and has trained over 50 Henkel sales representatives and provided over 1,000 training seminars to medical device engineers.
