ISO 10993 Certification for Biocompatible Adhesives - EPO-TEK® 353ND-T, OG 198-54 and 301

(Billerica, MA) – April, 2015 - Epoxy Technology Inc, a leading manufacturer of high performance specialty epoxy, UV & Hybrid adhesives for 49 years, is pleased to announce the successful completion of ISO 10993 testing on three additional products.  These latest positive results for EPO-TEK® 353ND-T, OG 198-54 and 301, which included an extended, long term implantation study of 12 weeks for 301 show their commitment and investment in the medical industry.

EPO-TEK® 353ND-T, a thixotropic variation of an established “industry standard” 353ND, is easily applied by multiple methods, has outstanding strength as well as high moisture and chemical resistance. It is well suited for all conventional sterilization methods: ETO, Sterrad®, X-ray and autoclaving.

EPO-TEK® OG198-54, a unique, one component, low viscosity, electrically & thermally insulating UV epoxy adhesive, was formulated to have added performance (shadow curing) with thermal post curing.

EPO-TEK® 301, a low viscosity, low temperature cured (65C/1 hour), optically clear, two component epoxy adhesive, previously passing the standard ISO10993 testing, has now successfully passed the more extensive testing of 12 weeks implantation.  

Several EPO-TEK® products are ISO 10993 and USP Class VI certified and more will follow.
