"Hello, I am using DYMAX 140-M to bond ABS to stainless steel. The product will be sold sterile in a Tyvek and LDPE/PET laminate pouch. Is there any data that shows the adhesive will not interact with the packaging in a way that could compromise the sterile barrier as the product sits on the shelf?"
Unfortunately we do not have data as specific as this. With so many applications around the world, and with so many substrates and packaging options being used, we have not attempted to determine the effects of cured adhesive in contact with the device packaging. The medical adhesives are usually tested for contact with blood, skin, muscular implant, etc., per ISO 10993/USP Class VI procedures, all with good results. If the material is cured properly, then after cure it is considered a solid plastic (urethane/acrylic type). We do not use any type of plasticizers or migrating materials that could compromise the integrity of the sterile barrier.
