Guidance on Materials Selection for Medical Die Cutting

Within the industry, there are a vast range of different materials that may be utilized in the manufacturing of medical devices. While the undoubted trend is toward the use of polyolefin, we also regularly create die cut medical components from:

In either case, every material will offer a unique set of characteristics that may or may not be suitable to the finished application. Fortunately, the pros at Frank Lowe offer years of experience assisting manufacturers choose the most suitable material. We’ll listen to your medical device goals and needs to suggest the most suitable, cost-effective, and reliable material. Through our consultative process, we’re often able to make design or component enhancements, such as the use of anti-slip materials to increase stability. 

Guidance on Adhesive Selection for Medical Device Manufacturing 

In addition to characteristics, each material will offer a unique set of challenges and should always be carefully matched with the right adhesive. For instance, “non-stick” low surface energy (LSE) plastic elastomers — like polypropylene and polyethylene — will almost always necessitate the utilization of innovative adhesives designed to quickly establish bonds between the surfaces. 

The most common types of adhesives used in medical device component die cutting, slitting, and lamination include:

  • Silicones
  • Acrylics
  • Styrene block copolymers
  • Cyanoacrylates
  • Epoxies

Depending on the total picture, these adhesives may be required in unique formulations based on the application. At Frank Lowe, we are proud to be your one-stop solution for medical device die cutting and custom manufacturing.
