ICP DAS – BMP (Biomedical Polymers), a Taiwan medical-grade TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) supplier, will showcase highly-stable TPUs at China Medical Equipment Fair (CMEF 2023) from 14 to 17 May (Hall 8.1, N44, National Exhibition and Convention Center, Shanghai).
Material “safety” and “quality” are paramount to medical device manufacturers. ICP DAS – BMP offers visitors ideal medical manufacturing materials, including three series of Alithane™ (ALP series), Durathane™ (ALC series), and Arothane™ (ARP series). All TPU pellets have passed the USP Class VI and/or ISO 10993 biocompatibility tests. Moreover, we developed a unique one-step polymerization process to produce high-performance TPU pellets available in various colors, radiopaque fillers (Tungsten/Barium Sulfate) and hardness.
Vascular access devices — fundamental and yet critical — are widely used in patient care such as hemodialysis, chemotherapy or chronic illnesses. Highly-reliable materials need to be used in the manufacture of medical device components to minimize the risk of catheter-related infection. ICP DAS – BMP TPUs, with lot-to-lot consistency and outstanding processability, have been chosen by worldwide clients to produce components of central venous catheters (CVC) such as peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC), non-tunneled and tunneled catheters. Other applications are guidewire coatings, etc.
ICP DAS – BMP believes conducting thorough quality inspections for every batch of materials produced is a significant first step to ensure patient safety. We are dedicated to providing high-quality TPUs that enhance the treatment experience.
Amid soaring worldwide demand for TPU from the medical industry, ICP DAS established a new business unit ICP DAS – BMP in 2018 to develop and produce medical-grade TPU. We have obtained ISO 13485 manufacturing certification for our TPU to ensure product safety and quality.
ICP DAS – BMP has its own laboratories for polymerization, physical & chemical properties analysis, mechanical testing, and cytotoxicity testing. In addition, TPUs that we manufacture are USP Class VI and/or ISO 10993 certified: ISO 10993-4 for hemocompatibility testing, ISO 10993-5 for cytotoxicity testing, ISO 10993-10 for irritation and skin sensitization testing, ISO 10993-11 for systemic toxicity testing, and ISO 10993-23 for irritation testing. Our product series also comply with REACH and RoHS.
