Composite solutions for life changing applications
Advanced Thermoplastic Composites
Automated fiber-placed composite parts for Healthcare & Medical applications
Advanced composites are an optimum solution for many critical applications in the Healthcare & Medical industry.
Offering ideal strength-to-weight ratios and non-reactive materials, thermoplastic composites are ideal for operations such as production, storage, filtration, and transportation.
Composite solutions can be used for life changing applications such as imaging equipment and prosthetic limbs.
Biotechnology and bio-processing continue to advance with the help of composites
Lightweight thermoplastics have improved chemical handling abilities of researchers
Trelleborg Healthcare & Medical engineers partner with customers to develop and manufacture custom advanced composite parts. Our fiberglass-reinforced polypropylene composites are manufactured using a fully automated, out-of-autoclave process. Parts can be manufactured in any shape or size desired and are ideal for use in complex chromatography and bioprocessing applications in the Healthcare & Medical industry.
Lighter and thinner than traditional and unreinforced options
Available in a range of shapes and sizes, large diameter parts are produced using automated fiber placement (AFP)
Demonstrate significant mechanical strength, e.g. columns withstand high internal pressure
Non-reactive materials, high bacterial and chemical resistance commonly found in bioprocessing
Machinable to tight tolerances
Consistent inner diameter surface finish
Typical Healthcare & Medical Applications:
Chromatography columns in bioprocessing and manufacturing or other GMP environments.
Materials Specific to Healthcare & Medical:
Polypropylene with continuous fiber E-glass reinforcement (70% by weight)
PEEK (polyetheretherketone) with continuous carbon or glass fiber.
Wide range of other Polymers based on application.
