Silicone and Polyisoprene Rubber Part Coatings
Silicone’s popularity for use in medical devices has been growing. This is due to its compatibility with bodily fluids and strong chemical structure. Advancements in medical polymers are also part of this push toward next-generation single-use medical devices, implants and packaging technology.
In order to get the right material, configuration and manufacturing process for a device’s proper end use, it’s key to choose the proper technology to customize the silicone components for the right application. We’ll review the advantages and disadvantages of several types of processing techniques for silicone plus post-fabrication services like coating, sheeting, tubing and packaging.
