Medical Porous Plastics

M.A. Industries Medical Porous Plastics - The medical industry utilizes porous plastic parts in a wide range of applications. Medical porous filters allow gases to escape while preventing liquids and chemicals from passing through the filter. Typical applications include pipette filters, medical release patches, catheter and syringe vents. Porous plastics can also be used for their diffusion properties to allow a controlled release of various liquid medications.
Primary resin systems used are polypropylene and polyethylene in pore sizes ranging from 10 -350 um with pore volumes from 30 -70%. Our Cyrogenic Resin Grinding capability allows us to tailor resins and particle sizes to meet customer requirements.
