Composite films contribute to the safety, sterility, and protection of a wide range of medical products. Their barrier properties, customization options, and compatibility with various sterilization methods make them indispensable for ensuring the quality and integrity of medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and supplies. The packaging can have moisture and oxygen barriers, IV protection, dose control and release, and tamper-evident features.

Biocompatibility & Non-Stick Properties

Biocompatibility: Our PTFE-based medical film is a biocompatible material that does not react with human tissues, making it ideal for use in medical applications. 

Non-stick properties: Our films have non-stick properties, which can prevent the adhesion of tissues or other materials to medical devices as well as easily release from a range of adhesive systems. This property is particularly useful for surgical tools, implantable medical devices, and transdermal patches.

Chemical Resistance & Electrical Insulation

Chemical Resistance: These films are highly resistant to chemical reactions, which makes them useful for protecting medical equipment from chemical damage or for use in environments where chemical sterilization is required. 

Electrical Insulation: Saint-Gobain’s PTFE-based films are excellent electrical insulators, which makes them useful for applications such as the insulation of electrical wires in medical devices.
