      Plastics are used to manufacture many types of medical equipment from MRI machines to handheld diagnostic wands. Other high-purity plastics are used in medical devices such as surgical instruments, dental instruments, sterilization trays, endoscopic probes, anesthetic, diagnostic, and imaging equipment. Plastic products for medical applications are very important and contribute to improved heath (e.g. blood pouches, tubings, disposable syringes, prosthesis). The plastic industries in India started with the introduction of products like-cellulose acetate, acrylics and vinyl. The newer plastics, such as.

Shaping the Future through Innovation! for applications including surgical instruments and devices, orthopedic sizing trials, imaging and monitoring components, surgical trays and caddies, diagnostic and analytical equipment. PLASTIC INNOVATIONS FOR MEDICAL APPLICATIONS Internally Lubricated Wear-Resistant Compounds Application ideas: injection pens, inhalers, compressor bushings, gears, valves, sliding mechanisms, safety syringes, moving parts on medical devices • Lowers coefficient of friction and promotes smooth, unforced motion.

      Plastic solutions for the medical industry Facing new challenges The major trends in the medical industry such as ageing patients and their mobility needs, as well as younger peoples' desire for a pain-free life, are resulting in an increase in surgical procedures as well as new treatment is leading to greater prices and added cost. Plastics are pervasive in medical, from tiny extruded catheters to tamper-evident medicine caps to huge MRIs that are built using thermoformed parts. Plastics have made health care simpler and less painful and made new techniques and prostheses possible. To compete in this market, processors need to have commitment to quality and consistency.
