Better component or easier assembly performance often requires polymers, sometimes in custom blends. This can be true when designing fluid delivery systems, as well as in many static or dynamic applications. Minnesota Rubber and Plastics molds miniature components using custom blends of PEEK, polycarbonate, polysulphone, Nylon, polyethylene, polypropylene, FKM and EPDM elastomers.
Many of these components are as small as 1 mm in diameter and weigh under 0.018 g. Often these components must handle sterilization, chemical compatibility, biocompatibility, toughness and durability and show hydrolytic stability at elevated temperatures.
These miniature components can be combined into assemblies that include specialized seals and sealing devices.
