Polygon’s PolyMed composite medical tubing
Polygon Company, a producer of composite tubing, bearings, and cylinders, will be exhibiting its high-performance PolyMed composite tubing for surgical applications at Medical Design & Manufacturing West in Booth #2246.
Examples of the use of PolyMed composite tubing include placement on electro-surgical devices (both monopolar and bipolar), surgical ablation tools, suction irrigation or trocar cannula, endoscopic/laparoscopic instruments, and robotic surgery technologies.
Lightweight and strong, PolyMed composite tubing is invisible to X-ray, thermally insulating, and non-conductive. PolyMed strength and performance characteristics exceed those of stainless steel and are superior to traditional thermoplastic materials. Rigid or flexible according to client needs, PolyMed acts as a drop-in replacement for stainless steel tubing in a variety of endoscopic and laparoscopic instrumentation applications. PolyMed is ISO-10993 compliant and can be sterilized.
