Quadrasil

Quadrasil™ is a family of thermoplastic silicone polyurethane co-polymers that exhibit the properties of both urethane and silicone. Included in this family of materials are our standard Quadrasil™ line, Elast-Eon™, and ECSil™.

Quadrasil™ ARES, aromatic polyether silicone thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), and Quadrasil™ ARCS, aromatic polycarbonate silicone TPU, comprise our standard medical grade silicone co-polymers. These materials are ideal for use in the following applications:

  • Catheters
  • Chemical Resistant Applications
  • Port Catheters
  • Dialysis Catheters
  • Indwelling Catheters
  • Cardiac Pacing Leads
  • Neuromodulation Leads
  • Orthopedics
  • Stent Coating
  • Interventional Cardiac Devices

The Elast-Eon™ family of polymers combines the advantageous properties of both polyurethanes and silicone rubbers into a single material. These materials exhibit the physical and mechanical performance of polyurethanes and a biological stability that surpasses rigid biostable polyurethanes. Elast-Eon™ polymers are widely accepted as being the most biostable of all polyurethane materials and as such are being used in long-term implantation. Elast-Eon™ may be used in applications including:

  • CRM Devices (e.g. Pacemaker)
  • Neurostimulation Devices
  • Electro Signaling Devices
  • Breast Implants
  • IUDs
  • Implantable Joint Interface Coating
  • Stents
  • Ear Tubes
  • Heart Wall Graft

ECSil™ polycarbonate silicone is a family of next generation biomedical polymers. ECSil™ retains the class leading biological stability of Elast-Eon™ while exhibiting superior physical properties across the grade range. ECSil™ is available in a range of mechanical properties, but extends the softer materials to 70 Shore A while still delivering properties many times better than equivalent silicone rubbers. ECSil™ is generally used in applications where the device requires a very high level of mechanical performance. ECSil™ can be used in applications such as:

  • Blood Glucose Monitoring
  • Finger Joint
  • General Orthopedic
  • Spinal Discs
