Mediprene OF - Oil Free TPE Compounds for Medical Applications

The Mediprene Oil Free range was developed to address demands for transparent medical TPEs with a minimum of potential extractables and leachables. The Mediprene OF range helps to prevent the possibility of oil migrating or leaching out of the material, a key requirement for medical and healthcare-related devices. They are ideal for sensitive medical applications where transparency is also required.


Special features:

Minimum of potential extractables & leachables
PVC, silicone & latex free
Soft-touch appeal
40 to 90 Shore A
Transparent & Crystal Clear Grades
Anti-kinking
Sterilizable with gamma, ethylene oxide (EtO) and steam
Excellent sealing & adhesion


Applications:

Mediprene 500 M - Plunger seal range

We have developed a range of Mediprene thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) for plunger seals in single-use syringes. The TPE seal, which is mounted on the end of the plunger, needs to provide a leakproof seal with the syringe barrel. As ease of use for the medical practitioner and patient comfort are also key requirements, the seal helps to optimize plunger movement for accurate dosage control and ease of injection.

Special features

  • Translucent or black opaque
  • Hardness from 43 to 73 ShA
  • Adhesion to PP and PE in
  • 2K applications
  • Suitable for injection Moulding
Application

  • Plunger seals for single use syringes
