Engineering plastics for the medical industry

Tuesday, 09 June, 2009 | Supplied by: Dotmar EPP Pty Ltd

Dotmar can offer an extensive range of medical-grade thermoplastics that meet strict FDA and USP Class IV requirements. Designed specifically for the medical, pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors, these medical-grade thermoplastics will replace existing solutions made of stainless steel, titanium, glass or ceramics.

Thermoplastics reduce weight and are commonly more resistant to sterilisation methods, and offer anti-static performance and resistance to high energy radiation.

Analytical and diagnostic equipment applications include trays, centrifuges, mass spectrometers, DNA probe analysers, radiation and ultrasound equipment, X-ray and MRI devices. In the biotechnology and laboratory equipment fields, thermoplastics can be used in bioreactors, nozzles, adapters, caps, optics and lenses.

Typical medical and dental applications include instruments, grips, drilling and suction equipment, isolating parts, targeting devices, endoscopic equipment and surgical grips. The plastics also have slide and wear applications for dosing, filling, sealing, mixing and other pharmaceutical and packaging processes.

The use of specialised, medical-grade thermoplastics offers increased security, reduce time to market and increased production speed.
