Sterilization of Medical Equipment
Sterilization plays a major role in the use of both reusable and disposable medical devices. Download this white paper to learn about the different types of sterilization methods and their effects on materials used in medical devices. Also included is The Spaulding Classification System and recommended processes for various medical devices. To maintain their performance properties both during and after the sterilization processes, the selection of appropriate adhesives, sealants, coatings and encapsulants for medical devices is critical.
