Yarn Extrusion and Medical Textile Design Processing
Medical textile design and production begins with the medical grade fiber (yarn). The medical device component requirements must be used to determine the appropriate medical yarn and medical textile design. The selection of a specific medical fiber or medical yarn must consider requirements for:
- Tissue in-growth
- Duration of body contact
- Device mechanical properties
ATEX Technologies extrudes its own polyester fiber, along with other thermoplastic polymers, in-house, customizing it to meet your design requirements. We can control the properties of the yarn, and ultimately the component, by expertly monitoring the entire process ensuring performance and uniformity. WE EVEN HAVE A MASTER FILE ON OUR PET MATERIAL. The ATEX R&D and biomaterials engineering groups have the skill and expertise to assist you in selecting the appropriate medical fiber for your device.
