MEDICAL EQUIPMENT & SUPPLIES

Plastics have transformed the medical equipment and supplies industry, creating new possibilities improving the standard of living for millions of people through medical supply improvements. The use of plastics is quickly growing in the areas of orthotics and prosthetics, taking advantage of plastics' unique characteristics.

Advantages of plastics

The advantages of plastics for Medical Equipment and Supplies are numerous. Plastics are much lighter than metal, which equate into better fuel economy and cheaper to manufacture parts. Additionally, the lighter weight aids in safer material handling. Plastics can be designed to be impact and dent resistant, and modified for improved strength. Corrosion resistance, color and texture flexibility, the economical components and aesthetics are other advantages of plastics.

Materials Utilized Within Industry

Medical materials that meet FDA and USP Class VI requirements and certifications and lot & batch traceability, include PEEK, Radel, Ultem, Acetal, Noryl, Polycarbonate and ABS.
