The high hygiene demands in medical engineering have resulted in the development of high performance plastics which can be disinfected and sterilised in superheated steam several times.

Further characteristics are:

  • High strength and rigidity
  • Good creep resistance
  • Good to very good chemical resistance to body fluids and disinfectants
  • Hydrolysis resistant to hot water and superheated steam
  • Good electrical insulating properties
  • Depending on the plastic type, good resistance to high energy gamma and X-ray radiation
  • Low weight
  • Wide variety of design possibilities and colours
  • FDA/BGA and USP conformity

ERIKS supplies high performance plastics meeting the requirements of the FDA / BGA and USP Class VI or equivalent German and European regulations and thus complying with the application requirements for medical technology.

The following ERIKS plastics are suitable for applications in medical technology:

  • PEEK - TECAPEEK
  • PES - TECASON E
  • PPSU - TECASON P
  • PEI - TECAPEI
  • PTFE
  • PVDF
