Evonik has launched a new name for its biocompatible polymer range - Care. The new name covers a wide range of high-performance polymers utilised in a variety of medical applications.
Two examples of Evonik's products are Vestamid and Trogamid. According to the company, the biocompatibility of these brands has been proven in comprehensive tests by independent testing institutes, and our materials meet USP Class VI requirements.
Evonik offer a range of customised product solutions, depending on the technical requirements for the medical device, whether flexible or rigid, transparent or translucent. For example, Care products are used in a variety of medical applications, such as in catheters for vascular treatment, in surgical instruments, or as selector valves for infusion equipment.
"When designing our Care products, we work closely with our customers to offer custom solutions as well as to pick up on and play out trends in the medical industry as they occur," says Christiane Röhnke, Medical Devices Business Manager.
Thanks to decades of experience, Evonik is one of the leaders in polymer design technology. Evonik assists its customers throughout the product development cycle—from material development to the manufacturing of the finished product.
