Versaflex™ HC Thermoplastic Elastomers
Versaflex™ HC TPEs are specially formulated to meet demanding healthcare device and application challenges. Unlike PVC, these materials are made without phthalate plasticizers, offer high clarity in some cases, bond to a variety of substrates, and can be customized for color and hardness. Common healthcare applications include medical and biopharma tubing, gaskets and stoppers, bags, bottles and films.
When used for overmolding, the Versaflex HC portfolio of TPEs and TPUs delivers excellent chemical resistance to common disinfectants and cleaners to extend the useful life of your medical devices. They also add color, soft touch and improved grip.
Designed to help you overcome challenges, these materials meet demanding performance requirements such as low coefficient of friction, high resealability, low extractables, high service temperatures, and suitability for various sterilization methods.
