Dow Corning Products for Medical Devices - Designed with your needs in mind

The past few decades have brought extensive advances in medical care. New and innovative technologies have helped find unprecedented ways to fight disease. Many of these technologies are the result of a visionary expansion in materials. Silicones, with their unique material properties, have found widespread application in Healthcare. Properties attributed to silicone include biocompatibility and bio-durability, which can be expressed in terms of other material properties such as hydrophobicity, low surface tension, chemical and thermal stability, and gas permeability. These properties were the basis for the silicone’s initial use in the medical field. Since the 1960s silicones have enjoyed expanded medical application and today are one of the most thoroughly tested and important biomaterials.
