Creative Materials offers a range of radio opaque inks and adhesives, both as standard products and as custom formulations. Radio opaque inks and adhesives are used to print visible tags for X-Ray, CT, CAT scan and mammography and for other radiographic medical diagnostic procedures, including marking of catheters and balloons or in pressure-sensitive labels.

Our radio opaque inks and adhesives feature excellent adhesion to Kapton, Mylar, glass and a variety of other substrates. They are solvent-based and may be applied by syringe dispensing, dip-coated, pad- or screen-printed onto a variety of substrates and cured quickly at low temperatures. Unlike conventional conductive materials, radio opaque inks and adhesives are very resistant to abrasion, scratching, flexing and creasing.
