Material Price v. Component Cost

Posted: October 20, 2017

Thermoplastics are sold by unit weight (e.g., $/lb, €/kg). However, the material cost for a plastic component must consider component volume and density of the plastic.  For thermoplastics, density is reported as ‘specific gravity.’

Polysulfones in Healthcare Applications

Posted: October 18, 2017

Elastomeric polymers offer flexibility to navigate complex anatomical pathways via catheters.   Modulus, a measure of strength relative to elongation, is the material property that provides a relative comparison of flexibility for these materials. A low modulus implies greater flexibility and is often correlated with lower hardness (Shore scale A and/or D).
