Medical Dip Molding, Coating, & Casting
Dip Molding, Coating, and Casting is a process using liquid resin solution and depositing the material on a mold or substrate, allowing the resin to cure and then demolding of the component. These processes are used to make products such as medical balloons or coating of stents, baskets, or catheters.
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 and specialty coatings 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.
