Medical and Scientific Devices

A wide array of reinforcements and resin systems
that can be customized and adapted to various environments.

From high electromagnetic stress, to cryogenic storage, to self-lubricating bearings and wear pads.

Norplex-Micarta high performance materials are a good fit in many types of medical equipment. Parts made from cloth substrates are quieter and longer lasting than many metal parts and do not require lubricants, which may not be allowed in sterile environments.

In addition, thermoset materials can withstand the chemicals and temperatures used in the sterilization of devices. Applications range from stethoscope plates to static dissipative X-ray and operating tables and include coil components in sophisticated MRI units.

Norplex-Micarta also designs special composite materials that provide low attenuation features for use with X-ray units.

Thermoset materials are non-conductive, non-magnetic, high strength, and reasonably lightweight, making them suitable for all types of mobile medical devices.
