Other products for medical applications
We supply the FELIBENDY™ and KURAFLEX™ nonwoven brands of nonwoven fabrics for sterile dressings, bandages, masks and operating caps. SEPTON™ and HYBRAR™ thermoplastic elastomers make medical films, adhesives and hoses transparent, flexible and extremely robust. HYBRAR™ is particularly suitable as an environmentally friendly substitute for PVC in such products.
Kuraray Vectran™ fiber for medical applications is characterized by exceptional tensile properties, bending tolerance and minimal creep. Furthermore, the fiber shows excellent temperature and moisture resistance and is MRI compatible. These properties make Vectran™ an excellent reinforcement material for medical applications such as catheters, device delivery systems, guidewires or surgery robots. A braid of Vectran can increase the stability of the construction in an ablation catheter, for example, and prevents the outer layers of the catheter from being dented or damaged during use. Since Vectran™ has a very thin diameter lower device profiles can be created. Kuraray meets the high demands on the quality management of medical devices with its certification according to ISO 13485:2016 (this certification refers to the Kuraray entity Kuraray America, Inc.).
