VESTAKEEP® Care (PEEK) & VESTAMID® Care HT (PPA)
for resistant parts

These high-temperature plastics are characterized by a multitude of advantages:

  • exceptional hardness & toughness
  • dimensional stability at high temperatures
  • high chemical resistance
  • high hydrolysis resistance
  • very good sterilisability

Due to their outstanding properties, PEEK and PPA have become the most important substitutes for metals.

 

VESTAMID® Care ME (PEBA)
for catheters & tubes

VESTAMID® Care ME is successfully used as a catheter material due to its high burst pressure resistance. This results from a combination of flexibility and pliability as well as toughness and hardness.

  • flexible
  • without plasticizer
  • different degrees of hardness
  • good restoring force
  • high impact strength
     

VESTAMID® Care ML (PA12)
for catheters & devices

VESTAMID® Care ML is successfully used as a catheter material due to its high burst pressure resistance. This results from a combination of flexibility and pliability as well as toughness and hardness.

  • high impact strength
  • strong & flexible
  • low sliding friction
  • high abrasion resistance
  • fatigue resistance
     

TROGAMID® Care (transp. PA)
for infusion devices & housings

The crystal-clear polyamides are chemically based on the TROGAMID® CX series and have passed special tests for medical devices. They show

  • high transparency
  • high chemical & lipid resistance
  • very good stress crack resistance
  • and are free of bisphenol A.


These properties make TROGAMID® Care products ideal for applications in direct contact with drugs or active ingredients. They also show outstanding resistance to disinfectants containing alcohol - especially in comparison with other transparent materials.
