Fascinating Silicone™ Success Story – Healthcare

Silicone biomaterials provide greater patient comfort

Improving patient comfort in China

When engineers develop medical devices, they look for materials that fulfill several needs such as quality and meeting regulatory requirements, cost-effectiveness and ease-of-use in manufacturing.

To meet those needs, a silicone coating system for latex catheters was launched at a China Medical Equipment Design and Technology conference. The physical properties and biocompatibility of the silicone improve the final product and provide greater patient comfort – a key aspect of quality of life for patients in treatment.
