Surgical Robotics Market
The field of surgical robotics is rapidly evolving with innovative approaches and technologies, which call for advanced material developments. Saint-Gobain is driven to meet these needs with metal-replacement offerings and high dielectric strength polymers. Robot-assisted surgery needs biocompatible polymers that can withstand high temperature/currents and resist serial sterilization protocols.
PEEK is an ultra-engineering polymer can meet these material requirements. Silicone can also be used due to its excellent heat resistance, dielectric strength, and biocompatibility. Saint-Gobain is a leader in silicone molding and extrusion.
