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:
Chemical Resistant Applications
Cardiac Pacing Leads
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)
Electro Signaling Devices
Implantable Joint Interface Coating
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
Quadrasil™ exhibits the properties of both urethane and silicone.
The Quadrasil™ family includes our standard line, Elast-Eon™, and ECSil™.
Quadrasil™ is ideal for use in implantable medical devices.
