Solvent Bondable Medical TPEs
These grades are part of our Mediprene family of TPEs designed for medical device applications.
These are designed to be used in combination with solvents such as cyclohexanone and tetrahydrofurane (THF). Mediprene TPE materials are PVC, silicone and latex free, making them allergen free and a viable alternative to PVC based compounds.
In the range, compounds suitable for extrusion as well as injection moulding are included to fill the need for both solvent bondable tubing and injection moulded parts, e.g. connectors.
- IV set components
All Mediprene Solvent Bondable series compounds fulfil the strict Mediprene raw material selection policy. The raw materials have a proven level of biocompatibility and are food contact compliant. Our production site is accredited to ISO 13485 with documented traceability and change control processes.
