Medical Dip Molding, Coating, & Casting
Dip molding and casting of medical balloons and other components involves dipping a positive mold in a liquid resin solution, allowing the resin to cure, then demolding of the component. The same process can be used to coat components.
Dip molding is ideal for producing thin-walled, highly compliant balloons, coating stents and wires, casting specialty films, and more. Dip molding does not produce seams or mold parting lines on components, and it is ideal for fast prototyping and large-volume production runs. Dip coating can provide soft grips or protective coatings to surgical instruments, containers, or components.
Polyzen has extensive experience and in-house capabilities to dip mold with thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs), thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs), silicone rubbers, and other polymer dispersions or solutions. In-house polymer solution formulation and mold development allows us to provide quick turnaround on dip molded, cast, and coated prototypes.
