Irish compounder improves lubricity of medical-grade Pebax

Low-durometer polymers often are used to manufacture catheters and medical tubing because they afford flexibility to the physician who is navigating the device through the vasculature while minimizing patient trauma. However, the material’s inherent friction can lead to manufacturing and packaging issues and create complications in the final application. Innovative Polymer Compounds (IPC; Kilbeggan, Ireland) has developed a material based on a medical-grade polyether block amide from Arkema, Pebax MED, that improves lubricity and adds functionality.
