Continually investing in product development, we have a portfolio of thermoset and thermoplastic materials that have been developed specifically for use within:

  • Medical
  • X-ray couches, tables and mammography plates
  • MRI scanners and C scanner components
  • Surgical target devices and tools
  • Prosthetics e.g. springs
  • Orthotics e.g. anterior foot, podiatric correcting in-soles, braces
  • Walking aids and wheel chairs

Material properties

Properties of our materials include:
  • Medical
  • High strength to weight ratio
  • X-ray transparency
  • Heat resistance for steam sterilisation & excellent solvent resistance
  • Excellent cosmetic finish
  • Excellent damping and shock attenuation and resiliency
  • Enhanced energy return (spring) and response
  • Light weight and thin – minimise weight to reduce fatigue & stress
  • Tailored properties – varying degrees of stiffness
