Surgical Tools & Instrumentation

Whether used for a single procedure or reprocessed, today’s certified medical plastics enable product engineers to meet strict performance and reliability criteria in a wide variety of surgical instrument applications across all risk classifications. Entec can help simplify material options to minimize surface interactions, survive sterilization processes and meet strict end-use design requirements. 

Single Use Disposables

Delivering clinical performance and patient safety at the lowest possible cost is the very definition of why single use disposable devices are used in virtually all clinical procedures. Designing these products starts by understanding user requirements and then balancing performance, cost, reliability, materials, and shelf life. 

Drug Delivery Devices

From simple syringe components to sophisticated and automatic injection devices, the goal of every drug delivery device is simple: Accurately delivering the exact amount of therapeutic drug needed every single time. While the concept is simple, achieving this goal using a variety of different medical materials can be complex without the right experienced partner.

Medical Packaging

Medical packaging can also be referred to as barrier packaging and is a critical component to patient safety and effective treatment. Packaging provides a barrier against moisture, oxygen and light while maintaining a product’s sterility in many cases. In the case of APIs, effective barrier packaging guarantees efficacy and shelf life claims

Durable Medical Equipment

Whether used in a clinical setting or in the home, purchased or rented, medical companies expect their products to provide long-lasting value, high-performance and exceptional quality. From simple braces to multi-million dollar machines, a wide variety of plastics play an integral role to the long-term clinical performance of these applications.

Medical Fabrics

Most of today’s high-performance medical fabrics are SMS nonwovens produced using plastics, balancing performance and cost with strength, flexibility, air permeability and rated barrier requirements. 

Labware

Low cost but high-quality plastics free of contamination and capable of being resterilized is the benchmark of labware plastics used in many testing regimens. Exceptional optical properties and high heat resistance are two other properties which allow plastics to replacement of other more expensive materials such as glass and quartz

Wearable Devices

Although this category has existed since 1938 with the invention of the first hearing aid, technological advancements have revitalized the convergence between wearables and medical products. The product’s reliability, expected life cycle, resistance to body fluids and haptics must all be carefully considered to produce a device which meets stringent safety and accuracy standards
