Successful plastic joining in manufacturing is a challenging issue. For applications in medtech, it becomes even more critical. Finding an FDA-approved adhesive that also bonds to low-surface-energy polymers commonly used in medical applications leaves manufacturers with few options.
That is, until they look beyond adhesives.
When it comes to production, welding offers greater consistency, stronger joints, and does not require consumables. However, making the switch from adhesive bonding to plastic welding can be intimidating, which is why the EWI team has developed a step-by-step guide to help manufacturers choose the right process, joint design, and evaluation methods.
