Tailor-made high-performance polyamides for medical technology

Polyamides from EMS-GRIVORY are used in a wide range of applications for sophisticated therapeutic equipment and laboratory fittings, disposable and reusable instruments, containers, medical infrastructure, protective equipment and mobility aids in the field of medical technology. Our specialty polymers pass the specific bio-compatibility tests according to USP Class VI and ISO 10993 per with flying colours and are resistant to sterilisation processes as well as aggressive disinfectants and cleaning agents. Our product portfolio satisfies the high performance requirements in the field of medical applications with both transparent and high-rigidity reinforced materials.

Among the applications realised are fluid-carrying components in infusion systems and respirators, breathing masks, surgical instruments, analysis containers, OP lights, structural parts for hospital beds, monitor brackets, patient lifting devices, walking aids, hearing aids and fitness trackers.

Reusable medical products or instruments present a possible risk as source of cross-contamination. EMS GRIVORY has developed Grilamid TR HT 200, with its crystal-clear transparency, high mechanical strength and toughness as well as excellent resistance to chemicals, especially for innovative reusable applications. This material can be steam-sterilised up to several hundred times at temperatures around 134 °C.

Our antimicrobial polyamide grades are particularly suitable for surfaces and components of equipment that are touched by many people every day. In accordance with the standard JIS Z 2801:201, growth of bacteria is inhibited by 99%.

Our experienced application development specialists provide design and laboratory support for the realisation of your ideas from the concept phase right through to serial production.
