Interstate Highlights Medical Solutions
Interstate Plastics material solutions for healthcare industries and medical applications was on full display in early February at the Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) West 2020 convention at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Interstate Plastics highlighted advancements, continued research, and development in medical-grade plastics and the company’s growing range of orthopedic applications for the healthcare and medical industries.

Interstate Plastics discussed high-performance biocompatible plastics, including Radel® PPSU, Ultem® PEI, medical- grade acetal, heat stabilized polypropylene, UHMWPE, PEEK, and gamma stabilized polycarbonate, to name a few.

Representatives from Interstate Plastics’ medical division were available to provide a comprehensive overview of the company’s complete line of medical-grade plastics for surgical instruments, diagnostic equipment, dialysis units, drug delivery systems, surgical carriers, caddies and trays, dental equipment, healing caps, sizing trials, provisional knee trials, heads and cups for hip implants, impactor applications, medical instruments, and other medical devices.

Interstate Plastics medical material solutions are FDA, USP Class VI, and ISO 10993 certified, and include a variety of plastics and composites with a radio opacifier (XRO), which are x-ray opaque for clear visibility of a component on fluoroscopy and x-rays, helping to address new challenges created by minimally invasive and image-guided surgery. Interstate Plastics also offers a variety of cleanroom solutions, including FM4910 and UL94 V-0 compliant materials.

Interstate Plastics works closely with manufacturers to provide lot and batch traceability. All test data is made available for materials, including FDA compliance, biocompatibility, resistance to sterilization, as well as thermal, electrical, chemical resistance, and mechanical properties.
