AXIS 1026:

Product Description

AXIS 1026 is a low viscosity, UV-curable adhesive that fluoresces under black light to aid in the inspection of bonded assemblies. AXIS 1026 was designed for bonding stainless steel cannula into hubs, syringes, and lancets for needle assemblies. Resin Designs medical device adhesives contain no nonreactive solvents and are biocompatible per ISO 10993-5, cytotoxicity.

Heat is also an important component with UV cure, and different systems produce different heat outputs. Cure testing was done in an open system and results will vary with application. Consequently, Resin Designs recommends that curing is discussed with our technical staff to ensure the exact customer process being used will meet the coating cure requirements.

AXIS 1026 was designed to be cured using a microwave UV oven. Arc and LED systems may cure AXIS 1026; however, care must be taken during the equipment selection process to ensure minimum dosage and irradiance values obtained will properly cure the coating. Because of the variations possible in curing equipment type and configuration, it is strongly recommended that you contact Resin Designs Technical Support to discuss your equipment and process in detail.
