Medical Seals and Gaskets with Polar Adhesion TPE
KRAIBURG TPE offers THERMOLAST® H HC/AD1/AP polar adhesion series for gaskets, seal and sealing components
The development of safe and effective medical devices has been the industry's top priority. According to the World Health Organization, there are over two million different types of medical devices on the global market, each of which belongs to a specific generic device group. These devices are used in therapeutic and diagnostic procedures, as well as patient care and medical research.
A variety of medical instruments rely on high-performance gaskets, seals, and sealing components to protect them from dirt, dust, liquids, electromagnetic interference, electrostatic discharge, and flame, among other things.
As a result, thorough selection of the material capable in meeting these requirements for gaskets, seals, and sealing components is important.
Manufacturers are increasingly using TPEs due to their material properties and cost-effectiveness, with safety and efficacy being important parameters when developing medical devices and parts.
KRAIBURG TPE, a global TPE manufacturer of a wide range of TPE products and custom solutions for multiple industries, offers the THERMOLAST® H HC/AD1/AP polar adhesion series for medical device components that require superior sealing performance, processing benefit, and overall cost savings for the manufacturer.
Suitable hardness and flexibility, simple processing
THERMOLAST® H HC/AD1/AP series is available in a variety of hardness ranging from 30 to 80 Shore A, allowing the manufacturer to select the appropriate hardness for the application as needed. The compound can be injection molded to adhere to polar thermoplastics such as PC, ABS, PC/ABS, ASA, SAN, PET, PETG, PS, and others. It also has optimized mechanical properties and a soft touch surface for product design flexibility.
