9. Minnesota Rubber and Plastics: Elastomers
Minnesota Rubber and Plastics announced that it will be showcasing its Quniton materials and Qmonix elastomer at MD&M Minneapolis.
The Quniton materials are designed for medical developers who need high-performance lubricious materials with permanent, low coefficient of friction surface properties. It minimizes friction, wear and abrasion in medical valves, plungers, caps and seals.
Quniton materials also have a biocompatibility USP Class IV and ISO 1099305 certification of base materials. It is able to resist severe chemical exposure to acids, bases and solvents and has a thermal stability at temperatures up to 500ºF. Because of its low coefficient of friction, Quniton materials can be bonded or stuck to a variety of materials to itself.
Its USP Class VI certified Qmonix Elastomer 912T is used in biocompatible applications where tear resistance and mechanical durability are needed. The Qmonix elastomer is a low compression set and is water and steam resistant. It has high dielectric strength and has been ISO-10993-5 tested and meets USP Class VI requirements.
