DSM Biomedical offers PurSil® Thermoplastic Silicone Polyether Polyurethane (TSPU), a novel copolymer that is strong yet flexible with proven biocompatibility and biostability. Because of its outstanding flexibility, oxidative stability, and thromboresistance, PurSil® TSPU is used in a wide range of medical devices, including ophthalmic, anastomotic, and continuous glucose monitoring.
PurSil® TSPU is adaptable to various fabrication techniques to accommodate many different device shapes and can be extruded, injection or compression molded, solvent bonded, dipped coated, and sprayed. PurSil® TSPU can be enhanced with SME® technology to incorporate end groups such as fluorocarbon and/or polyethylene oxide. This highly flexible polymer is available in aromatic and aliphatic versions.
