WHY REPLACE METALS WITH PLASTICS IN THE MEDICAL FIELD?

The unique characteristics of medical plastics make it an ideal material for medical parts, equipment, supplies, and components. In fact, durable, cost-effective plastics are replacing other materials, such as steel, ceramics, and glass, because of their incredible advantages and benefits to the medical industry.

  • Versatility and Safety—Has a great deal of applications in health care, from disposable medical products to medical equipment such as hospital beds or MRI equipment. Because it is shatter-proof and non-permeable, it is a great solution for safely storing and removing medical waste.
  • Lightweight and Durable—High strength-to-density ratio makes plastic materials an excellent alternative to metals. Plastics can withstand wear and stresses due to its structural integrity and malleability.
  • Easy Sterilization—Handles frequent sterilization cycles without degradation or wear. Also, plastics are highly effective at repelling bacteria and some plastics show great infection resistance.
  • Cost-Effective—Helps reduce medical costs while still offering superior benefits to the medical industry.
  • Ease of Assembly—Offers more flexibility in design of components and parts. Plastics can be intricately shaped and molded while keeping tight tolerances and burr-free edges.
  • High Thermal and Mechanical Capabilities—Offers the ability to withstand temperature swings while maintaining its structural integrity.
  • Excellent Resistance Qualities—High wear tolerance with excellent corrosion, temperature, and chemical resistance.
