- Do you sell thru distributors or only direct?
As a contract manufacturer, our business is mostly focused on B2B business opportunities. Many of the products we produce are made to other OEMs or companies that want to develop a product or idea. Those companies could turn around and sell directly to consumers, distributors or another way, we do not, and we do not sell directly to the public.
- What are you extrusion capabilities?
Our extruders are capable of up to 800°-900°F (cast bronze heaters or ceramic). We do not have a need to retrofit our die heaters and assemblies to accommodate higher temperatures (higher watt densities, aluminum heat transfer components, insulation, etc). We highlight that our engineering staff has many years of experience in manufacturing products with high-performance polymers such as PEEK, PEKK, PPSU, Radel, etc.
- Are you able to provide samples for your polyurethanes and other medical polymers for preliminary or regular testing?
Samples are available on a case-by-case basis. Many of the materials that we offer have the option to supply samples in minimal quantities while others are available based on current inventory levels. For more information on how to inquire about a sample, please contact Nat Fredin. Learn more >>
- Are you looking for distributors in any foreign countries outside of the United States?

- Are you a publicly or privately held company?
Biomerics is a privately held company.
- What is the relation between the quality engineer (CQE) and assembly of medical devices?
