Material

PA 12 Medical-Grade (PA 2201)

This version of PA 12 has high strength, chemical resistance, and detail resolution, making it ideal for medtech applications and devices requiring biocompatibility. This material is subjected to testing for cytotoxicity, sensitization, irritation, acute systemic toxicity, and material-mediated pyrogenicity. To ensure your biocompatibility requirements are met, talk to us about our manufacturing services for PA 12 Medical-Grade.
