Sophisticated and Highly Pure
Ensinger Compounds, a division of HP Polymer GmbH, Lenzing, Austria, develops and produces tailormade compounds based on engineering and high-performance plastics. Among the main products supplied by the company in the challenging medical sector are radiopaque plastics, antimicrobial pellets and custom-colored high-performance plastics.
Compounds with the trade name Tecacomp MT, for example, are mixed with contrast agents for use as radiopaque plastics. As materials for surgical instruments and orthopedic test implants in minimally invasive and image-guided surgery, they must be visible under x-rays. Antimicrobial plastics inhibit the growth of bacteria, yeasts and molds. Their bactericidal effect is based on a patented dosage system, which releases silver ions in a controlled way. The antimicrobial effect – and hence protection against infections and food poisoning – is maintained for many years, even on frequently wiped surfaces.
