INDUSTRY.co.id - Medical valves control or deliver fluids (liquids and gases) and are essential in operating rooms, intensive care units, outpatient facilities, laboratories, and even homecare settings.

With advances in patient disease care and management technology, it is difficult to imagine surgical devices, patient monitors, and other critical medical equipment functioning without valves.

Isolation valves, general service valves and other types of valves are some of the examples available in the medical market. These valves are designed to regulate and deliver low volumes of internal fluids.

Thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) have been a material choice in the design of medical valves due to the flexibility and durable characteristics of the compounds. Medical valves are available in different sizes and shapes and the flexibility of TPEs enable the compounds to fulfill the requirements of medical device manufacturers.

KRAIBURG TPE, a global TPE manufacturer of a diverse range of thermoplastic elastomer products and custom solutions for a variety of industries, offers high-quality custom-engineered compounds for medical valves. TPEs are both safe and cost-effective, so it's no surprise that more manufacturers are using TPE in a variety of applications.

THERMOLAST® H - Exceptional material advantage

The THERMOLAST® H series from KRAIBURG TPE can be sterilized in an autoclave at 121°C or by Eto. The compounds have excellent thermoplastic processing and flowability. They have good bonding with PP and PE, good chemical resistance, a good compression set, and are free of animal ingredients. THERMOLAST® H is available in translucent and natural form, and depending on project specifications, in-house precoloring is also an option.
