The fast pace and constant innovations of the medtech and biosciences industries call for the most performing materials.
Silicone rubber is the material of choice for most medical and biosciences applications. It can resist bacteria growth, be formulated to be anti-microbial, and seeing as silicone is heat stable and autoclavable, silicone rubber parts can be easily sterilized. Either through liquid injection molding (LIM), compression or transfer molding or extrusion, silicone’s versatility and biocompatibility expands silicone rubbers use in medical devices of all kinds. Common medical applications include extruded tubing, bellows and a wide range of different types of seals and sealing devices.
Most customers want to have their parts LIM, but due to the development stage, cannot invest so heavily in the large tooling costs, nor the time to make such large and complex molds for un-proven concepts and first articles. Vicone can help promote rapid design and evolution in your products by reducing the overall development cycle. We mitigate your risk by helping and supporting the design process, through concept to production by using our expedited and cost effective project/product development process, design services, real rubber prototypes, and expertise in making things work the first time, fast. Not to mention, who is best suited to supply production parts to you? The ones who helped define, validate, and perfect your part.
