MEDICAL DEVICE LNP™ COMPOUNDS- WEAR AND FRICTION SOLUTIONS-MEDICAL DEVICES
For a medical device, whether it be a drug delivery pen or a laparoscopic surgical tool, repeatable and efficient motion is critical to performance. The friction between moving parts plays a large role in how a device is perceived and accepted by both consumers and healthcare professionals. LUBRICOMPTM and LUBRILOYTM compounds can help deliver the performance required.
GROWING LIST OF DEMANDS
The demands on wear and friction materials
for medical devices grow as sterilization and
cleaning techniques evolve, parts get smaller
and thinner, and market trends move towards
more consumer friendly styling and colors.
Add the heightened emphasis on system cost
optimization and the need for innovative
internally lubricated thermoplastic solutions
INTERNALLY LUBRICATED COMPOUNDS
The addition of an internal lubricant to a
thermoplastic material can reduce the coefficient
of friction between two plastic parts, allowing
them to slide past each other smoothly with
minimal wear. Traditional lubricants like medical
grade silicone and PTFE can be combined with
advanced PC copolymer technology to deliver
the required performance in thin wall parts.
