Presentation Title Thermoplastic Polyurethanes in Medical Applications
Author(s) Nathan Rohner, Anthony Walder, Michael J Wiggins
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Nathan Rohner
Abstract Scope Although commonly used in medical applications today, thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU) were originally developed for non-medical applications. In the 1960-70’s medical device designers discovered polyurethanes’ properties (mechanical strength, tunable flexibility, versatile processability, inherent biocompatibility) made them an attractive medical device material. The selection of materials for medical device use is more important than ever, given evolving regulatory standards driving toward robust biocompatibility, chemical characterization, quality control and change management. Lubrizol Life Science Health’s innovation team is dedicated to advancing medical TPUs with a focus on enhanced processing, differentiated performance, and biocompatibility.
