Hsinchu, (ANTARA/PRNewswire)- ICP DAS-BMP (Biomedical Polymers), Asia's leading medical TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) manufacturer and supplier, will exhibit at the International Component Manufacturing and Design Show (ICMD, part of CMEF) and Medtec Japan in April 2024. The company will showcase several series of medical-grade TPU pellets: Arothane™ (ARP series), Alithane™ (ALP series), and Durathane™ (ALC and ARC series).

At the exhibitions, ICP DAS-BMP will present the new Arothane™ ARP-W-G, a medical-grade aromatic polyether-based TPU loaded with 40-60% Tungsten as a radiopacifier. It demonstrates outstanding radiopacity compared to Barium Sulfate, making it particularly suitable for small-dimension or thin-walled devices. The ARP-W-G series is recognized for its small particle size, high fluidity, and excellent dispersion. It is highly recommended for use as guidewire coating material.

Engineering Arothane™ TPU (EARP series) is another new product that industry experts should not miss at the exhibition. The EARP series is a medical-grade aromatic polyester-based rigid TPU. It is distinguished from other TPUs by its high glass transition temperature (Tg) and exceptional light transmission attributes.

Two other highlights are Arothane™ ARP-B20 (20% Barium Sulfate) and Durathane™ ALC-B40 (40% Barium Sulfate), both of which passed the 90-day implantation test in accordance with ISO 10993-6 standard.

Other noteworthy products to be showcased are ALC-B30 and ALP-W for extrusion-based catheter manufacturing.

ICP DAS-BMP experts developed TPU pellets with varying percentages of contrasting elements using the in situ polymerization method, ensuring high biocompatibility for all TPU series. Products made from contrast-filled TPUs provide superior visualization, making them an important component for the production of minimally invasive medical devices.
