Nano Reinforcement of Medical Polymers

Enhancing strength and rigidity of polymers used for non-medical applications is often achieved by adding glass, carbon, and other fibrous materials to the polymer during melt compounding.  These fillers are too large for the extremely small geometries and thin wall sections of minimally invasive medical devices.  In such applications, nano clay reinforcement of polymers is far more effective.
