Polygon Announces PolyMed® Composite Medical Tubing for Highly Engineered Surgical Devices
Advanced composite alternative to steel tubing available now
Walkerton, IN – Polygon Company, a leading producer of composite tubing, bearings, and cylinders, announces high-performance PolyMed® Composite Tubing for surgical applications.
PolyMed® Composite Tubing is ideal for use in a diverse array of demanding medical applications. Example uses include placement on electro-surgical devices (both monopolar and bipolar), surgical ablation tools, suction irrigation or trocar cannula, endoscopic / laparoscopic instruments and robotic surgery technologies. The unique ability of composite materials to be tailored to demanding medical applications makes them the material of choice.
Lightweight and strong, PolyMed Composite Tubing is invisible to X-ray, thermally insulating, and non-conductive. PolyMed strength and performance characteristics exceed those of stainless steel and are superior to traditional thermoplastic materials. Rigid or flexible according to client needs, PolyMed acts as a drop-in replacement for stainless steel tubing in a variety of endoscopic and laparoscopic instrumentation applications. PolyMed is ISO-10993 compliant and can be sterilized.
PolyMed® Composite Tubing components are tailored for each customer project. Polygon Company dedicates composite experts to work closely with customer engineers to develop an exceptional, customized medical component. Architectures include braided, circumferentially wound, and unidirectional. Plus, the resilient, thin-walled material can be produced in multi-lumen shapes as one piece.
Ted Wallace, Director of Sales and Marketing at Polygon says, “Composites are an excellent replacement for stainless steel tubing and other metals in medical applications. PolyMed’s features and benefits out-do metal on multiple important factors, including patient protection.”
