Micro Molding With Bioabsorbables: Not Your Average Thermoplastics

Micro medical components can be manufactured with a variety of materials, most of which fall into two categories: thermoplastics and bioabsorbables. Thermoplastics are widely used polymers that become pliable and moldable above a specific temperature, and return to a rigid state when cooled. Bioabsorbable materials (a.k.a. resorbable, bioresorbable, or biodegradable) are materials able to dissolve or absorb into the body, eliminating the need for additional surgeries, and minimizing the risk for unfavorable effects. Download this white paper for more on the benefits of micro molding with bioabsorbables, as well as information on the different types of materials, and six key considerations for bioabsorbable success.
