Bioresorbable polymers used with textile-based medical devices require mechanical and chemical properties that are precisely engineered to match the processing and functionality requirements of the target application. Under a new collaboration between Evonik and ITV Denkendorf Produktservice GmbH (ITVP), companies can now access the industry’s most broad, versatile portfolio of homopolymers, copolymers and block copolymers for textile-based devices together with a range of best-in-class processing and technical services. Topics include:
- Enhancing device performance by combining high strength and elasticity with rapid degradation for:
- Meshes and tapes
- Monofilaments and multi-filament yarns / fibers
- How to optimize melt processing steps including the elimination of additives
- The use of customized services to optimize functional performance, accelerate development, analytical testing and commercial scale-up
Recent advances in biomaterials are helping to enhance the safety, biocompatibility and performance of implantable medical devices across a range of application areas, and also accelerate speed to market. As a global leader for bioresorbable polymers, surface modification technologies and application services, we hosted a special webinar series featuring some key opinion leaders.
Entitled “Biomaterial solutions for implantable medical device applications”
, the series covered a range of topics that are of growing interest to medical device companies across application areas including orthopedics, wound healing and cardiovascular care. Each live webinar was short, focused and gave participants an opportunity to ask questions directly to our experts.
Webinars which were part of the series are:
