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 

expands. 

     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.
