Our polymers provide an unparalleled catalogue of unique solutions with a wide range of chemical, mechanical, and degradation properties. More polymers equal more responsive designs with better outcomes. Don’t design for a polymer, select the polymer for your design.
A material consisting of a network of fibers is called a textile construct. Typically, constructs of this material are divided into the following categories: braids, knitted materials, woven mesh, and nonwoven fabrics. At Poly-Med Inc., these materials are developed to meet customer design and specifications.
These constructs are made up of multiple strands of fiber knitted into particular patterns. These materials have been known to be used in medical devices for hernia repair. For additional information about our mesh technologies contact us.
Consists of a single strand of fiber where the diameter is greater than 100 µm. These materials are typically oriented to enhance mechanical properites, dimensional stability or flexibility, and have been used in a range of medical applications.
Consists of a single strand of fiber where the diameter is less than or equal to 100 µm. These materials can be oriented to enhance mechanical properites or flexibility and have been featured as components in mesh, multifilaments, and other medical constructs.
Consists of fibers made of multiple strands of filaments of 1.5-30 denier per filament and 5-80 filaments per bundle. These materials are usually further oriented in-line and are known to be featured as components in mesh and other medical constructs.
These constructs are made of multiple strands of fiber that have been intertwined in such a way that no two fibers are twisted around one another. Braids have a high surface area, and can be constructed, with or without core filament material, with one or more braid layers consisting of 4-16 ends of yarn. Along with our braid constructs, we also feature our Caproprene™ line for coatings and drug delivery applications, which are typically applied at less then 5% add-on weight.
