Coloured medical grade thermoplastic elastomers

Coloured compounds are the latest development in ELASTO�s Mediprene range of medical grade TPEs.
Mediprene® Medical TPE compounds are suitable for a wide variety of uses in the medical and pharmaceutical market and new applications are being developed all the time. These compounds combine the performance of vulcanised rubber with the processing properties of thermoplastics, delivering sophisticated design opportunities through a wide and flexible range of products. Thermal and medical properties can be designed into the formulations. These TPE compounds are fully recyclable and thus fulfill environmental requirements. They have proven to be strong alternatives as replacement for PVC. They are completely synthetic and latex free thereby minimising allergy risks. The coloured compounds are made from medical grade raw materials only. The pigments and carriers are compliant with USP Class VI or corresponding parts of ISO 10993 and the masterbatches are manufactured under rigorous controls with regard to traceability, consistency and change control. In medical devices and pharmaceutical packaging colour is often used functionally to differentiate products and provide an easy method of identification. The vibrant colours achievable with coloured Mediprene compounds also give brand owners a means of adding value to their products and creating visual appeal. A fully colour compounded TPE gives a perfectly dispersed, consistent colour with a correct and reproducible addition level. Mediprene colour compounds ensure colour reproducibility and deliver a compound ready for use, with no additional steps for the moulder or extrusion company. The Mediprene range includes series optimised for injection moulding, adhesion in overmoulding and co-extrusion applications, medical tubing and oil-free grades. The full range is now available as colour compounds matched to customer requirements. Mediprene TPEs are used in a variety of medical device applications including intubation equipment, tubing, seals, drip chambers, soft-touch grips, face masks, resealable membranes and connectors.
