MEDICAL

Medical devices demand high purity medical grade plastics backed up by total traceability of all the ingredients and manufacturing stages. The high hygiene demands in medical engineering have resulted in the development of high performance plastics which can be disinfected and sterilised in superheated steam several times.

  • High strength and rigidity
  • Good creep resistance
  • Good to very good chemical resistance to body fluids and disinfectants
  • Hydrolysis resistant to hot water and superheated steam
  • Good electrical insulating properties
  • Depending on the plastic type, good resistance to high energy gamma and X-ray radiation
  • Low weight
  • Wide variety of design possibilities and colours
  • FDA/BGA and USP conformity

Plastics for the diverse healthcare industry:

Surgical instruments and devices: Handles and grips for instrumentation, sizing trials for knee and hip replacement, fixation devices, endoscopic housings and eyepieces, sterilization trays and caddies

Diagnostic: Parts for X-ray and MRI devices, components for supports and biopsy units

Therapeutic systems: Blocks and housings for dialysis machines, pistons and valves for anaesthetic equipment, supports and adaptors for respiratory units

Dental: grips and handles for dental instruments, components for treatment and therapy units

  • Applications for tablet production such as strong wear resistant manifolds
  • Wear parts for processing equipment such as star wheels and self-lubricated bearings
  • Tooling plugs for in-line thermoforming of pharmaceutical packaging
  • Sliding surfaces such as material chutes and wear strips on packaging conveyers
  • Anti-static plastics are used to control dust build up and to control surface contamination
  • High purity aseptic seals for pumps and seats for valves
  • Filled PTFE products with antimicrobial additives are used for sanitary seals and gaskets
  • Polycarbonate for optics and lenses in electro-optical microscopes and optical systems
  • Seals, stoppers and closures produced from natural, butyl and silicone rubber formulations
  • Applications of PEEK in high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC)
  • PTFE, PFA and FEP being the most "universally inert" materials available in lab wear products
  • Fabricated thermoplastic trays used in the fermentation of microorganisms to produce antibiotics
