Transparent TPE Compounds for Medical Applications

The Mediprene 500M range of TPEs for medical applications includes several transparent grades. These compounds were developed in response to an increasing interest in transparent compounds from the medical market.

Mediprene TPE materials are PVC, silicone and latex free, making them allergen free and a viable alternative to PVC based compounds. They offer hardnesses from 30 to 90 Shore A, allowing a wide degree of design freedom.

Special Features

Good transparency
PVC, silicone and latex free
Soft-touch appeal
30 to 90 Shore A
Coloured, transparent grades
Production site accredited to ISO 13485
Sterilizable with gamma, ethylene oxide (EtO) and steam
Flexibility over broad temperature range
Excellent sealing and adhesion

The ability to clearly see through a product to monitor the patient is an important feature for many medical devices such as face masks. Transparent TPEs can also be used in tubing and dental applications.

This medical valve needs to be easy to open and close for patients, including the elderly and disabled. The material also needs a high level of transparency to allow for good visability and it is essential the valve does not leak whilst being used.

We developed a special Mediprene TPE compound to ensure the right combination of patient comfort and medical functionality.

We have developed a range of Mediprene thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) for plunger seals in single-use syringes.

The TPE seal, which is mounted at the end of the plunger, needs to provide a leakproof seal with the syringe barrel. Ease of use for the medical practitioner and patient comfort are also key requirements. The TPE seal helps to optimize plunger movement for accurate dosage.

Our Mediprene OF compounds are PVC, silicone and latex free, minimising allergic reactions. They also have a high level of transparency, allowing for clear visibility of the passage of liquids and anti-kinking properties to ensure the free flow of liquids and gasses through the tubing.

They also display good damping properties, thereby slowly recovering after deformation like PVC, an important element in catheter tubing design.

Coloured Mediprene Compounds

Our coloured Mediprene compounds are made from medical grade raw materials only, thereby representing a natural expansion of our Medical TPE product range.

The colour masterbatch supplier has been selected with care, ensuring that not only the pigments and carriers are compliant with USP Class VI or corresponding parts of ISO 10993 but also that the masterbatches are manufactured under rigorous controls with regard to traceability, consistency and change control thereby fitting the Mediprene concept at our ISO 13485 accredited facilities.

In medical devices and pharmaceutical packaging colour is often used functionally to differentiate products and provide an easy method of identification. The vibrant colours achievable with coloured Mediprene compounds also give brand owners a means of adding value to their products and creating visual appeal. 

A fully colour compounded TPE gives a perfectly dispersed, consistent colour with a correct and reproducible addition level. Mediprene colour compounds ensure colour reproducibility and deliver a compound ready for use, with no additional steps for the moulder or extrusion company.
