- SWB offers simple, fast, and low cost operation requiring only a laboratory oven.
- Microdevices herein described showed burst pressures of up to 4.5Â MPa.
- Reversible behavior is crucial in stages of research and development.
- Chips obtained after successive detachment/bonding steps withstood high pressure.
- Emulsifications at high flow rates produced monodisperse dispersions.
To the best of our knowledge, this paper outlines for the first time high adhesion and hybrid irreversible/reversible microfluidic devices fully composed of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS). These chips were fabricated by the sandwich bonding (SWB), a method that was recently deployed by our group. SWB offers simple, fast, and low cost operation requiring only a laboratory oven. The devices showed burst pressures of up to 4.5Â MPa. This value is more than tenfold the pressures withstood by the full-PDMS chips described in literature. In terms of the reversible behavior, the ability for disassembling the chip slides is crucial in research and development stages, especially when the device integrates high-cost components or harsh cleaning steps are needed. Following successive steps of detachment and bonding, the channels still withstood high pressures of approximately 1.8Â MPa. Finally, the emulsification of corn oil 4.0% w/w to polyglycerol polyricinoleate with 10.0Â Î¼molÂ Lâ1 rhodamine B aqueous solution was realized to show the relevance in enhancing the flow rate in microfluidics. Such experiment was conducted at total flow rates of 0.8-160.0Â Î¼LÂ minâ1. The decrease in size and polydispersity of the droplets was observed at increasing flow rates. Monodisperse emulsions were achieved only at 160.0Â Î¼LÂ minâ1.
