Medical Plastics


The dental market requires biocompatible materials for applications like dental grips, gingiva formers and healing caps. The product range also includes biocompatible materials for dental applications. We have one of the industry's most extensive ISO 10993 and USP Class VI compliant testing and certification packages. Medical Plastics deliver chemically resistant polymers, with superior combinations of strength and stiffness. They are intended for applications that can remain in contact with human tissue or bodily fluids for up to 30 days. A maximum of 180 days is possible for dental healing caps with written approval.

Development time is key factor when bringing medical applications to the market.

Medical Plastics successfully passed a series of biocompatibility tests, run in order to check their compliance with both United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and ISO 10993-1 guideline requirements for Biocompatibility Testing of Materials.

Medical Plastics come with full traceability from raw material to stock shape. They are compatible with most common sterilization techniques such as autoclaving, ethylene oxide, gamma irradiation and hot air sterilization up to 180°C, and show good transparency to X-rays.
