Enhanced component or assembly performance often requires advanced polymers including custom blends. This is particularly true designing fluid delivery systems, or for many static or dynamic applications. Minnesota Rubber and Plastics molds miniature components for these devices using custom blends of PEEK, polycarbonate, polysulphone, Nylon, polyethylene and polypropylene.
Many of these components are as small as one millimeter in diameter and weigh under one gram. Some of the performance benefits required of these very small components include sterilizability, chemical compatibility, biocompatibility, toughness, durability and hydrolytic stability at elevated temperatures.
Combining these miniature components into an assembly that includes specialized seals and sealing devices is another core expertise of Minnesota Rubber and Plastics. By providing this range of options, designers are able to develop the best approach for solving a challenging application with an achievable, cost-effective result.
