Medical applications and parts
Medical devices are invasive by nature, from probing in and around the human body to combating disease and repairing damage. Implantable devices like hip replacements, artery stints, new valves and pacemakers are designed to remain inside the body long term.
Rubber used in medical-grade applications must have strong biocompatibility, superior temperature and chemical resistance, good mechanical and electrical properties, and natural clarity or translucence. Also, these products must be produced in a safe, contamination-free environment.
Everyday medical applications that use rubber:
- Wire seals
- Fluid seals
- Strain reliefs
Minor Rubber manufactures a variety of Food & Drug Administration-certified clean room rubber parts for healthcare applications, from general-purpose components to long-term implantable parts. Combining a vast range of high-quality materials with decades of knowledge and expertise, we can help you serve patients better.
