"Polyurethanes for Medical Applications"

Dr. Anthony Walder Technical Director of Thermedics Inc. Woburn, MA

The versatility of polyurethanes, along with their strength, flexibility and biocompatibility make polyurethanes a material used for many different medical devices. Polyurethanes are made from three basic chemicals. Polyurethanes with different properties can be obtained by changing the types of chemicals or the ratios of the chemicals. How the chemicals are mixed, the classes of polyurethane synthesis and how the final devices (components) are made will be discussed.
