A German SME active the development of innovative products in the field of diagnostics and analytics, life science and pharmacy is looking for an adhesive in order to complete the development of a product. The adhesive is needed for bonding a cellulose foil under a polystyrene plastic part. The company suggest using a UV adhesive. The adhesive will be applied with an automatic dosing system. The adhesive must be resistant to isopropanol (70%) and water for at least 40 hours. The adhesive should withstand a force of approximately 200 cN during a tensile test (using the company's test set-up). The most important property is the stability against isopropanol and water and that it does not release anything to the solution. In case it does not have the necessary adhesive strength, the company would test the adhesive nonetheless since the adhesive strength is of secondary importance. The glue can have any industrial origin. It does not need to have any current application in life science. The company needs the technology (glue) for making the product ready for the market. The product will be used in the preclinical development of new active substances/drugs and is not subject to any regulations. The company is looking for an expert in the adhesive production and/or development who can provide the company with the required adhesive or adjust an adhesive to fulfill the requirements and who can give advice on the appropriate cure within a commercial agreement with technical assistance.

How it works

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
