Static in drug delivery pathways can cause inconsistent dosages for pharmaceuticals delivered via aerosol or dry powder inhalers, use of conductive materials can minimize these issues in medical devices.
Selecting the best plastic for a medical device can be a complex decision unless you know how to talk to your material supplier to be assured that both parties have confidence in their recommendations.
As more electronic devices are introduced, the prevention of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) within and between these devices is becoming increasingly critical. Creating enclosures and shields from inherently EMI shielding plastic compounds represents a permanent and cost effective method for protecting these devices.
Lightning strike isolators are critical parts for aircraft safety that must resist “burn in.” Explore the development of carbon nanotube compounds that retain ESD properties after multiple 10 kV DC strikes.
