Designed for medical device manufacturing, Master Bond‘s MasterSil 711Med passes the ISO 10993-5 testing. It’s a one-part, flowable, room-temperature vulcanizing (RTV) silicone — which needs no mixing and can be used for bonding, sealing, coating, and form-in-place gasketing applications.
This non-corrosive, translucent compound withstands many sterilization methods, including liquid sterilants, gamma radiation, and EtO.
MasterSil 711Med cures quickly upon exposure to humidity or moisture. Curing speed is influenced by the humidity level, with higher humidity in the applied areas resulting in a faster cure. Additionally, thinner sections cure more quickly than the thicker ones.
The tack-free cure time at 75 °F and over 50% humidity is only two to five minutes. Once cured, MasterSil 711Med delivers high-temperature resistance up to 400° F. This compound is electrically insulative, with a volume resistivity greater than 1014 ohm-cm at room temperature. Featuring superior flexibility, it can also withstand thermal cycling, vibration and shock, with an elongation measuring between 300 to 400%. Its Shore A hardness is 25-35.
MasterSil 711Med bonds well to various substrates including metals, glass, ceramics, many plastics, and cured silicone rubber. It’s packaged in 30 cc syringes, which are equally convenient for automated and manual dispensing.
