Radiopaque Plastics

Injection molded parts and tubing made from radiopaque compounds absorb X-rays and are not transparent to radiation. As a result, radiopaque parts and catheters can be monitored inside the body via fluoroscopy or X-ray imaging.

The medical market also continues to seek lead replacement alternatives for health and environmental reasons.

Applications

  • Catheters
  • Surgical tools
  • Radiation shielding
  • Radioisotope (radiation therapy) shipping containers
  • Dental products (prone to accidental ingestion)
  • Food delivery tubes
  • Collimators
