How to deter material failure in your plastic medical products

May 7, 2024

Selecting the right material for a new medical device — especially when it comes to polymers — is critical to the success of the product. Material failures are costly and common; more than a third of FDA recalls are due to material problems.

Preventing Material Failure in Plastic Products: A Resource for Medical Manufacturers, written by Senior Technology Leader Jeff Ellis, provides an overview of several factors that can cause material failure in polymer components and products. This eguide identifies the sources for breakdown, describes the underlying issues involved, and provides practical ways to mitigate problems early in product development.
