Ultra Engineered Polymers
Saint-Gobain is a leading manufacturer of high-performance tubing made from ultra-engineered polymers. Our engineers possess extensive material and process knowledge, and we'll work side-by-side with your team throughout the development and life cycle of your product. Here’s a look at why ultra-engineered polymers are ideal materials for your application.
What are Ultra Engineered Polymers?
Ultra Engineered Polymers (UEPs) are the apex of thermoplastic polymer performance. These polymers have excellent heat/chemical resistance and mechanical/dielectric properties. There is a wide range of UEPs and many are described also as “high-heat” polymers due to their required high temperature processing conditions and heat resistance.
Why choose Ultra Engineered Polymers for the Medical industry?
With a drive within the medical industry to improve patient outcomes using minimally invasive, quicker procedures, traditional materials have not been able to meet the necessary requirements. Due to their unique performance attributes, UEPs can work in environments and applications in which common engineering polymers would fail. From high temperature exposure, exhaustive sterilization requirements, aggressive chemistry handling, high tensile strength/flexural modulus needs, or excellent dielectric properties, UEPs allow for solutions in the most challenging of applications.
