White Rubber Extrusion for Healthcare Supplies
Safe For Medical Use / About Qualiform
Companies across industries and across borders are shifting production to combat the shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) as the novel coronavirus spreads. Have you and your team have been planning to contribute and looking for custom white rubber extrusion services?
Without a doubt, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed taking on a project so far outside your manufacturing specialty. For this reason, you should dedicate significant time to discussing material selection with experts.
For example, a team might need to choose between neoprene or ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) for a rubber tubing project. Among other factors, resistance to specific forces distinguishes rubber types from one another.
Neoprene is notable for its ability to withstand wear from water and a diverse range of solvents. The rubber compound is useful for medical splints and braces as well as seals.
On the other hand, EPDM rubber offers significant resistance to heat. This can sometimes be the deciding factor between EPDM and neoprene. However, manufacturers can often choose neoprene when a task requires significant oil or grease resistance.
What Makes a Material Safe for Medical Use?
Whether fabricators produce a part through white rubber extrusion or any other fabrication method, products must meet strict standards to serve healthcare facilities. For example, the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) tests biological reactions to materials that make contact with skin.
In addition to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) enforcement of USP standards, materials that meet International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards for safety in healthcare applications receive the ISO 10993 certification.
