Visit booth #1943 to see Minnesota Rubber and Plastics presentation on Qmonix Elastomer 912T for medical developers in need of a USP Class VI certified material for bio-compatible applications. In addition, they will be show casing Quniton high-performance lubricious materials with permanent, low coefficient of friction (CoF) surface properties.
Qmonix Elastomer 912T
Developed for use in bio-compatible applications where mechanical durability and tear resistance are crucial to product performance, the Qmonix Elastomer 912T is low compression set and has excellent resistance to water and steam environments. Qmonix 912T exhibits high dielectric strength and has been tested in accordance with ISO-10993-5 and USP Class VI requirements.
Quniton improves medical devices’ performance features
Medical designers wanting to improve product performance will appreciate the highly lubricious material portfolio that Quniton brings to the Medical Industry. These Quniton materials have permanent, low coefficient of friction (CoF) surface properties. They minimize friction, wear and abrasion in medical valves, plungers, caps and seals and are rapidly being utilized for many medical products.
Quniton boasts a biocompatibility USP Class VI and ISO 10993-5 certification of the base material. Quniton maintains its original form and sealing force, retaining integrity throughout a product’s life cycle. Quniton resists severe chemical exposure to acids, bases and solvents and also maintains good thermal stability at temperatures as high as 500˚F (262˚ C). The low CoF of Quniton provides resistance to bonding or sticking to a wide variety of materials and itself and therefore is a good aide in assembly and disassembly operations.
Lih Fang Chew, Minnesota Rubber and Plastics, Global Vice President of Marketing MedPharma stated, “Application potential for Qmonix and Quniton includes Endoscope (Trocar) Seals, Electrosurgical Devices, Implantable Pulse Generators & Pacemakers, Medical Valves, Plungers, Caps as well as our branded products such as Quad Brand O-Rings, Quad-Ring Seals, and Quad Brand Ground Rubber Balls. We are excited to bring this material to market and certain Medical Device manufacturers will benefit greatly with use in their demanding applications.”
