Medical Device Design: Considerations for Plastic Products

Avoid Failure in Novel Plastic Products

Recall is a word a that medical manufacturer never wants to hear after launching a new device. Many medical device recalls stem from predictable material issues: improper material selection, environmental interactions, processing, and raw material attributes. Examining these factors early in product development can save a lot of time, money, and headaches. Learn about the common material problems that can cause failure in polymer components and how to address them.
