Polyzen Expands Lines/Offerings of Thermoformed Polyurethane (PU) Low Pressure Balloons

Demand Spurts Expansion for Popular Alternative to Blow/DIP Molded Large Balloons APEX, NC (August 25, 2005) - Polyzen, Inc., claimed to be one of the few, if not only manufacturer of 3 dimensional thermoformed polyurethane (PU) low pressure balloons, announces it has expanded this unique product line as well as increased production capacity to meet growing market demands. Polyurethane provides numerous beneficial properties not achievable with other polymers such as latex, but the difficulties in working with polyurethane limit the number of firms that can develop and manufacture products suited for specific medical applications. Polyzen's expertise with these materials makes them one of the few (or as noted above, one of the only) firms that offers low pressure polyurethane balloons using a thermoforming process. The leading benefit of thermoformed polyurethane balloons is that they provide medical product OEMs with previously unattainable body to neck ratios (with latex), plus eliminate the drawbacks of this material. Other features and benefits include: - the material offers infinite variations, sizes and shapes, all of which are 3 dimensional and can be easily folded - with their special barrier properties, the Polyzen PU films offer low gas permeability - they are now available in 1-10 to 1-50 (new, previously to 1-20) neck to body ratios, or any ratios in between - the process allows them to be produced in any size and configuration - conical, pear, triangular, cylindrical and "football" shapes, if desired - they have a nearly invisible seam - they are now available in thicknesses ranging from one to 10 mils - sizes as small as .200" (new, previously .050") can be produced - art-to-part times are as little as 4 weeks - all polyurethane materials used are suitable for and meet Class VI medical applications - quantities are unlimited Specifically, the new products and expansions at Polyzen include new grades and thicknesses of film, faster turnaround, new/additional personnel and new production equipment. Polyzen, Inc. is now in its 14th year as one of the medical products industry's leading manufacturers of critical and specialty disposable components and devices, as well as a leading contract manufacturer for medical product OEMs. It was founded by President Tilak M. Shah, who is regarded worldwide as the pre-eminent expert on thermoplastic polyurethane elastomers. There are breakthrough products that are being used more and more widely in medical products as alternatives to PVC and latex (the latter which are arguably less suitable for contact with patients and medical personnel). In addition, Mr. Shah and his company have earned numerous patents for products and techniques in the medial products industry.
