Medical Adhesive



N-Vinyl-2-pyrrolidone (NVP) exhibits valuable qualities in both contact lens manufacture and medical applications.

In contact lens production, NVP polymerises to form polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), which imparts hydrophilic properties to lenses, ensuring moisture retention and enhanced comfort.

In medical applications, PVP’s biocompatibility is harnessed for wound closure and tissue sealants, providing a less invasive alternative to sutures.

NVP’s adaptability in forming biocompatible materials makes it a versatile and beneficial component in both industries.

3MPMS (0Ultra)

3MPMS (0Ultra)

(3-Methacryloyloxypropyl)tris(trimethylsiloxy)silane exhibits advantageous qualities in both contact lens manufacturing and medical applications.

Its methacryloyloxypropyl functional group facilitates polymerisation, contributing to the formation of durable and biocompatible contact lenses with improved mechanical properties. Additionally, the trimethylsiloxy groups enhance the compound’s compatibility with silicone-based materials, making it suitable for advanced contact lens designs.

In medical applications, 3MPMS plays a role in formulating adhesives with superior bonding capabilities. Its silane functionality enables effective adhesion to diverse substrates, providing a reliable and long-lasting bonding solution in medical applications, such as wound closures and tissue sealants.

Overall, the compound’s dual functionality makes it a valuable component in enhancing the performance, durability, and biocompatibility of both contact lenses and medical adhesives.
