New technology presents healthier option for fluid delivery

April 1st, 2011 / By: / Advanced Textiles, Products

Genesis Plastics Welding, Fortville, Ind., and PolyOne GLS Thermoplastic Elastomers, McHenry, Ill., have joined forces to address environmental and health concerns with traditional materials used in medical fluid delivery products. A new technology from Genesis enables non-halogenated and non-plasticized GLS Versaflex™ thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) to be RF-welded into any two-dimensional shape or configuration, including mandrels, offering better flexibility, mechanical properties, clarity, aesthetics and value. Applications include infusion kits, blood transfer and drainage bags, and urinary bags.
