What plastics can be diffusion bonded?

Most thermoplastics including acrylic, PVC, Ultem® polyetherimide, and polycarbonate.

Diffusion bonding is a thermal process that fuses layers of material together, forming a permanent bond. Depending on your application requirements, IDEX Health & Science can bond many clear and colored materials like acrylic and GE Plastics’ Ultem® polyetherimide. We may be currently bonding material you are using or may have diffusion bonded prototypes on hand (or in stock).

IDEX Health & Science also employs other bonding methods that may be more appropriate for your application, like adhesive bonding, and solvent bonding.
