TPU films for sterile barrier protection and medical packaging
UFP Technologies has extensive experience in creating medical device packaging and components with films. Thermoplastic polyether polyurethane films are used extensively in protecting orthopedic implants, surgical instruments, surgical screws packaged within a sterile barrier system.
The thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) family of films offer excellent water, fungus and abrasion resistance. TPU films are of a rubber-like elasticity that are flame retardant in a full range of opacity. These materials meet USP Class VI standards for use with medical applications and compliant with multiple FDA regulations.
We can combine TPU films with other medical packaging materials such as foams, fabrics and other specialty materials to form unique composites. The composites are than fabricated via heat sealing, RF welding and thermoforming to manufacture custom packaging and components.
UFP Technologies has introduced FlexShield®, a medical device pouch made from TPU films used for screws, rods, plates, and other instruments.
