The Project: Quickly manufacture prototypes for the outside bumpers of a new pulse oximeter. The Solution: Use rapid injection molding to evaluate three part batches for $3,000 per batch in 10 days per order.
Silicone technology cures tack free in seconds to a depth of two inches upon exposure to UV or high-power visible light. These one-part Loctite Nuva-Sil silicones are ideal for deep potting, encapsulation, environmental protection, and sealing.
Contract processing services for thin film coatings and gas plasma surface treatment offer a variety of beneficial features.
From single- and double-coated foams to films and non-wovens, pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes
First-aid dressings primarily protect a wound from external contamination and additionally absorb blood and wound fluids. These systems are specially designed to ensure any bacteria coming into contact with the gel or contained with the exudate are absorbed, contained, and killed.
ARcare 90106 is a clear, double-faced film coated on both sides with a high coatweight, hybrid pressure-sensitive adhesive available in roll stock form. It is used in medical applications such as bonding in microfluidic devices or other disposable test formats.
Despite heavy investment in quality systems and personnel, the medical device industry is plagued with manufacturing waste, product recalls, and FDA violations.
The blue polyether foam head of these sponges is approximately 1-1/2 x 1-1/2 x 7/8 in. The ribbed polypropylene handle allows for a sure grip while the foam head, attached by adhesive, provides superior strength and durability. The overall length of this sponge on a stick is 6 in.
