Medical Grade Adhesives and Sterilization Processes

In this interview, Venkat Nandivada, Manager of Technical Support at Master Bond Inc, talks to AZoM about medical grade adhesives and sterilization processes. Some of the desirable properties an adhesive offers, include but are not limited to, biocompatibility, non-cyotoxicity, temperature and chemical resistance, thermal and/or electrical conductivity, and optical clarity. However, the combination of properties required from medical grade adhesives ultimately depends upon the specifics of the application and the kind of sterilization process that will be used. Surgical instruments, implantable sensors, catheters, endoscopes, and ultrasound probes are just a few of the many medical products assembled with adhesives, and the conditions that these adhesives might be subjected to vary case by case. One commonly employed method is steam sterilization, often referred to as autoclaving, whereby devices are exposed to moist heat in the form of saturated steam under pressure. This will occur in a steam sterilizer or autoclave. Autoclaving rapidly eliminates most microorganisms–such as bacteria, viruses, yeasts, fungi, and spores–on the surface of an inanimate object or withi...

Trump will win the general election in a landslide. The federal courts will continue ceding all power to the executive branch, gutting Congress’s ability to provide meaningful oversight and constraint. It stings a little at first, but I’m coming to terms with the fact that we now live in a post-democratic, post-rule-of-law, plutocratic authoritarian state—that’s where we’re at. In America’s über-polarized battle of down-home Peronists vs. honest-to-God social revolutionaries, the populist Mussolini-admiring Peronist rabble have triumphed. I don’t think the Democrat party will have to sandbag Biden. I believe that Biden will end up having the plurality of delegates which will make it easier for the DNC to nominate him on the first ballot at the convention. No Steve, Warren will not be the VP nominee. Not s chance. Maybe for Sanders, but not for Biden. She has too much baggage and is not doing well in the campaign. I am vascilating on the outcome of the ra...

Apprentices add value to Processor of the Year Intertech Plastics logo-pn-color logo-pn-color

Kate Hale, director of operations Intertech Medical, Jim Kepler, president, Intertech Plastics Inc. and Robert Edwards, chief financial officer, Intertech Plastics Inc. Denver — CareerWise, a broad-reaching apprenticeship program that started in Colorado, is moving to other states, and apprenticeships are getting bipartisan attention from presidential candidates. And it all began at a small custom injection molder in Denver, Intertech Plastics Inc. — the latest Plastics News Processor of the Year. Noel Ginsburg and two partners founded the company in 1980 when they bought the assets of a local molding plant that was closing. Intertech was originally named Container Industries, and it molded pails for the food industry. Ginsburg had developed the business plan for a college project at the University of Denver. These days, Ginsburg spends his time on CareerWise, which is modeled after apprenticeships in Switzerland and now covers much more than advanced manufacturing. It includes three-year apprenticeships in education, hospitality, business operations, information technology and health care. Coming up next will be automotive technician, property management and facilities manageme...

Delivery drivers face pandemic without sick pay, insurance, sanitizer | News

(Reuters) – On his delivery route through Orange County, California, Joseph Alvarado made 153 stops one day last week for Amazon.com Inc , touching the inside and outside of his van, more than 225 packages, and dozens of customers’ doors and gates. In a global coronavirus pandemic that has infected about 420,000 people and killed nearly 19,000, delivery drivers like Alvarado have become as essential as first responders, providing food and other basics for millions of people who are isolating themselves under government stay-home directives. But unlike traditional emergency workers, today’s delivery drivers typically have little or no health insurance, sick pay or job security – and many say they lack even the basics needed to stay safe on the job. Alvarado said the van he drove wasn’t cleaned before or after his 10-hour shift, nor were the bins holding packages handled by warehouse workers and delivery drivers. Yet his company offered no gloves or masks, and only sporadically provided hand sanitizer. Under pressure to meet targets for delivery speed and volume, Alvarado and other drivers say they have little or no time to stop and wash their hands. “I’m being exposed...
