BONDING THERMOPLASTIC ELASTOMERS (TPE) & CONNECTORS  
  IN MEDICAL DEVICES  
       
 

Design engineers choose TPEs for high degree of purity (low extractable), recycling ability and cost-effectiveness. It is also a safer product to use over latex and PVC. Coupled with enhanced grip performance, improved ergonomics, improved aesthetics, and critical impact protection and impermeability to air and moisture, it is an obvious winner over the conventional use of PVCs as the preferred choice.


The biggest challenge to wide-spread switch to TPEs is due to their low surface energy for bonding applications. Incure now delivers solution to this bonding problem with newly developed Cyro-Weld series of medical adhesives for disposable medical devices.
