Engineered Thermoplastic Resins for Medical and Healthcare

The Medical segment requires stringent parameters when dealing with medical grade resins for both in-the-body and out-of- body devices. Strict tolerances and certifications require extreme attention to detail when choosing a material. Polymer Resources helps facilitate this choice by adhering to a precision standard, method of processing, and delivery time that meets and exceeds the needs of an end user and/or molder. Healthcare market segments include, but are not limited to:

• Medical Imaging

• Medical Transportation

• Medical Devices-In-body and Out-of-Body

• Surgical Devices

• Orthopedics

• Housings

Polymer Resources uses an array of engineered thermoplastic resins to meet the needs of the medical industry: Polycarbonate, PC/ABS, PPX, ABS, PC/TP, TPSF, and more. Need specifics in the formulation? Polymer Resources works with the end user and/or molder to derive a custom formulation that meets the standards set forth. What’s more, depending on the application, Polymer also uses Additives, Modifiers, and Reinforcing Agents:

Additives– UV stability, easy release (mold releases), colorants, and other stability additives

Modifiers– Flame retardants, impact modifiers, flow enhancers

Reinforcing Agents– Glass fibers, mineral filler
