4902™ is a highly flexible cyanoacrylate adhesive
designed for the assembly of flexible medical devices. This
product facilitates the use of dissimilar and opaque substrates
while improving device performance. LOCTITE®
significant performance enhancements compared to standard
cyanacrylates, including strength in flexing bond lines and
resistance to leaks with excellent sealing capability. Known
performance advantages of cyanoacrylates are maintained,
including speed, ease of use and strength.
An ISO 10993 Test Protocol is an integral part of the Quality
Program for LOCTITE®
been qualified to Henkel's ISO 10993 Protocol as a means to
assist in the selection of products for use in the medical device
industry. Certificates of Compliance are available on Henkel's
website or through the Henkel Quality Department.
TYPICAL CURING PERFORMANCE
Cure Speed vs. Substrate
The rate of cure will depend on the substrate used. The time
to develop a shear strength of 0.1 N/mm² on different
materials at 22 °C and 50% relative humidity
Cure Speed vs. Bond Gap
The rate of cure will depend on the bondline gap. Thin bond
lines result in high cure speeds, increasing the bond gap will
decrease the rate of cure.
Cure Speed vs. Humidity
The rate of cure will depend on the ambient relative humidity.
Higher relative humidity levels result in more rapid speed of
Cure Speed vs. Activator
Where cure speed is unacceptably long due to large gaps,
applying activator to the surface may improve cure speed.
However, this can reduce ultimate strength of the bond and
therefore testing is recommended to confirm effect.
This product is not recommended for use in pure oxygen
and/or oxygen rich systems and should not be selected as
a sealant for chlorine or other strong oxidizing materials.
For safe handling information on this product, consult the
Safety Data Sheet (SDS).
Directions for use:
- Bond areas should be clean and free from grease. Clean
all surfaces with a Loctite®
cleaning solvent and allow to
- To improve bonding on low energy plastic surfaces,
Loctite® Primer may be applied to the bond area. Avoid
applying excess Primer. Allow the Primer to dry.
- LOCTITE® Activator may be used if necessary. Apply the
LOCTITE® Activator to one bond surface (do not apply
activator to the primed surface where Primer is also
used). Allow the Activator to dry.
- Apply adhesive to one of the bond surfaces (do not apply
the adhesive to the activated surface). Do not use items
like tissue or a brush to spread the adhesive. Assemble
the parts within a few seconds. The parts should be
accurately located, as the short fixture time leaves little
opportunity for adjustment.
Activator can be used to cure fillets of product
outside the bond area. Spray or drop the activator on the
- Bonds should be held fixed or clamped until adhesive has
- Product should be allowed to develop full strength before
subjecting to any service loads (typically 24 to 72 hours
after assembly, depending on bond gap, materials and
- This product performs best in thin bond gaps (0.05 mm / 2
