Thermoplastic Elastomers for Medical Devices

Prosthetic FingersRTP Company is a Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) compounder that can support your medical device development needs from virtually every angle. From standard products that are pre-tested to ISO 10993 biocompatibility standards to custom and highly functionalized TPEs that are formulated to dissipate static electricity, provide radiopacity, or lower sliding friction force.

At RTP Company, we have structured our TPE product line to give the medical device design engineer ultimate flexibility. Our line of standard products provides time-tested performance in an array of devices, while our experienced R&D group is able to custom formulate unique TPE alloys and incorporate functional additives in support of your most demanding product developments.

RTP Company offers medical grade TPE compounds which have been pre-tested by an outside lab to meet ISO 10993 biocompatibility standards, including requirements for cytotoxicity (part 5), irritation and delayed type hypersensitivity (part 10), and systemic toxicity (part 11).

Benefits to using RTP Company TPE compounds include:

  • Medical grade TPE compounds pre-tested to ISO 10993 biocompatibility standards
  • Custom engineered TPE alloys designed for specific properties/performance
  • Six TPE chemistries available: TEO, SEBS, TPV, TPU, COPE, PEBA.
