Einsatz von Butylelastomeren für medizinische Anwendungen
von S. Newman
Thermoset elastomers are used in many medical applications. Major elastomeric devices include seals, stoppers, gaskets, bulbs, containers, and bags. Nowhere is elastomer quality more critical than in the medical field; elastomers must meet stringent requirements for purity and consistency. Butyl and halobutyl elastomers are proven polymers for use in pharmaceutical closures and various medical device components.
