ABSTRACT
The article focuses on biocompatible one-component epoxies which can pass stringent medical-device tests. Several advantages of one-component epoxies are also cited such as well adherence to metals, plastics, glass, and other substrates used in medical equipment. Information is also presented on two-part epoxies, which are created through the polymerization of a resin and a curing agent.
