Plastics for Medical Technology & Orthopedics


Plastics for medical technology and orthopaedics

As the world's population rises and becomes ever older, so the need for modern and efficient medical provision takes on increasing importance. Safe, innovative and efficient materials are essential if the high standards of modern medicine are to be met. Few sectors place such high requirements on materials. Röchling Industrial offers plastics for medical technology and orthopaedics:

Your advantages

  • Resistant to standard cleaning agents and disinfectants
  • High surface quality

Typical areas of application

  • Operating theatres
  • Hospitals
  • Doctors' practices
  • Pharmaceutical firms
  • Laboratories
  • Care homes

Product examples

Breast biopsy unit made of SUSTAPEEK MG

Machined to close tolerances according to the customer's drawing, the breast biopsy unit made of SUSTAPEEK MG offers excellent resistance to all conventional forms of cleaning and sterilisation processes. However, the material also has extremely high dimensional stability, which is vital for the application. SUSTAPEEK is biocompatible according to DIN EN ISO 10993-5. The tests were performed directly on the semi-finished product.


Components for magnetic resonance tomography (MRT)

Made of glassfibre-reinforced plastic, Durostone® is permeable for magnetic fields, making it excellently suited for use in magnetic resonance tomography (MRT). Components made of Durostone® include patient beds, coil supports made of coiled rings and spacers machined according to customer drawings.

Antimicrobial wall coverings

The prevention and control of multi drug-resistant bacteria in medical facilities are of great importance. Whenever weak patients come into contact with germs, their safe treatment and rapid recovery are put at risk. That is why top hygiene standards are required in hospitals, GP surgeries and care homes. We have developed our antimicrobial wall covering TroBloc® M in response to these specific requirements. TroBloc® M prevents the spread of bacteria, viruses, mould and even MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) without using toxins or antibiotics. TroBloc®therefore helps medical staff to maintain the highest hygiene standards.

Polystone® P ortho - ankle-foot orthoses

We developed our Polystone® P ortho product range for the various requirements and applications of orthopaedic technology. The ortho products offer optimized thermoforming and shrink properties as well as high surface quality. These properties make them ideally suited for a variety of applications such as ankle-foot orthoses (picture).
