Foster PureEase™ Technology Improves Process Consistency For Urethane Extrusions

TPX

PUTNAM, CT  USA - (July 19, 2016) - Foster Corporation, a leader in custom polymers for medical devices, now offers thermoplastic urethanes (TPU) with PureEase™ technology for improved extrusion processing control. This proprietary additive system was developed to help maintain consistent processing parameters of validated TPU based polymers and compounds. Consistent processing parameters can mean tighter ID/OD tubing tolerances especially in small tubes. “Many medical devices require validated manufacturing processes for components such as tubes and films. This can be challenging for components made from TPU’s due to process variability,” said Lawrence Acquarulo, CEO of Foster Corporation. “PureEase technology improves process consistency and reduces dimensional variation of finished components.”
