Finding Balanced Solutions for Medical-Grade Materials

When medical device and diagnostics manufacturers work through material selection for their products, polymers such as polycarbonate (PC), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and poly-vinyl chloride (PVC) are commonly used materials that first come to mind. Some of these established grades are used because they meet certain basic needs required for various healthcare applications. When selecting the right material for a specific application, it is common for designers to focus on attributes such as impact performance, clarity, chemical, and/or heat resistance. Designers often have to evaluate the advantages and disadvantages associated with each resin type. Products may have a benefit in terms of a single physical or chemical attribute, which can be offset with a shortcoming in another area.
