Mediprene OF - Oil Free TPEs for Medical Applications
The Mediprene Oil Free range was developed to address demands for transparent medical TPEs with a minimum of potential extractables and leachables.
The ability to clearly see through a product to monitor the patient is an important feature for many medical devices such as face masks. Transparent TPEs can also be used in tubing and dental applications.
The Mediprene OF grades are also highly suitable for medical tubing. They have a high level of transparency, allowing for clear visibility of the passage of liquids and anti-kinking properties to ensure the free flow of liquids and gasses through the tubing.
We also offer grades which display good damping properties, thereby slowly recovering after deformation like PVC, an important element in catheter tubing design. For catheter applications, the tubing is often coated in order to achieve a low-friction surface, Mediprene TPE compounds have been successfully modified for better wettability and adhesion of such coatings.
Hot melt adhesives (for example for connections) adhere well to the Mediprene OF range. These compounds show excellent performance with double-coated tapes for ‘stick to skin’ applications such as patches for fixation of tubing or other medical components.
