Medical TPEs bounce rubber from syringe application

02/12/2011


Lake Geneva, Wisconsin-based Plas-Tech Engineering, a custom moulder of medical components, has selected Teknor Apex Medalist elastomer compounds as alternatives to conventional materials for a new range of single-use syringes used in cosmetic surgery.
Plas-Tech uses the compounds instead of thermoset rubber for the tiny plunger tips or seals that prevent drugs in the tube or barrel of the syringe from flowing backward as the plunger is depressed.
Charno commented: “As thermoplastics, Medalist elastomers process at higher rates than traditionally used polyisoprene rubber and permit cost-effective production in high-cavitation and hot-runner injection moulding. Their consistent shrinkage allows for extremely tight dimensional tolerances without trimming or other post-moulding processes.”
