AdvanSource Biomaterials Corp. 1100-45A
PolyBlend is a family of exceptionally soft, aromatic polyurethane elastomeric alloys, which can be used as a substitute for natural rubber or latex in many applications.
These polymers encompass unique characteristics such as low flexural modulus, moderate tensile strength, and high elongation, in addition to allowing for a high draw-down ratio due to its superior melt strength and chemical integrity.
PolyBlend can be processed on conventional extrusion or injection molding equipment and is available in hardnesses ranging from 45 Shore A to 80 Shore A.
AdvanSource Biomaterials synthesizes and manufactures medical grade materials offering the ability to tailor physical and mechanical characteristics to support and enhance your end product design.
These mechanical characteristic's, critical to the design and development of medical devices, can incorporate a wide range of physical and chemical properties while maintaining core characteristics such as biodurability and biocompatibility. In most materials, specialized characteristics such as the addition of colorant agents or antimicrobial properties (where applicable) can be added to the polymer to provide a homogenous material and limit secondary processing steps.
In addition, radiopaque agents may also be incorporated into the formula to provide additional product enhancements and may contain up to 40%, by weight, of a radiopaque agent thus allowing varied-scale visibility options.
With an expanding range of secondary operations including custom solution development, prototype coating capabilities, and project management services, ASB's expert team of chemists, scientists, engineers and industry professionals assist in every stage of customers' projects, from concept initiation through full-scale manufacture.
