WHITE PAPER - Using Solvents to Bond Components in Medical Devices

No matter the complexity of a medical device, at some point there will be a requirement to secure two components together, whether this be a Luer to PVC Tube or surgical blades to a robot arm.

If you are stuck on how to stick it, solvent bonding your medical devices may provide the solution you’re looking for.


In this White Paper Mark Holme, an engineer at Mi3, discusses the technicalities of using solvents in the medical device manufacturing process.


Medical device assembly requires a strong, repeatable process for the creation of hermetic seals to applicable leak, strength, functional and stability standards. Whilst there are

more technically complex options available in UV cured adhesives and ultrasonic welding of components, solvents such as cyclohexanone have been widely accepted

amongst the medical device community.
