Biocompatible silicones that adhere to strict regulatory standards for use in healthcare and food-contact applications.

The Challenge

Manufacturers who serve healthcare industries and make products for human consumption use a wide range of silicones that must be dependable, safe, biocompatible and comply with strict regulatory standards. These products must be of the highest quality, easy to process, cost effective and customized to meet exacting specifications. They must also offer innovative properties that stand out in very demanding and competitive markets. Suppliers to health-sensitive industries must also offer complete support services, including R&D partnerships to develop new products upstream and reliable procurement and technical support services downstream.
