Implantable Devices

Impatable Devices

Manufacturers of long-term medical implants (defined as devices inserted in the human body for more than 29 days) use medical grade silicone ingredients and formulations to make a wide range of products:

  • Tubing and drains
  • Drug delivery systems
  • Cardiac resynchronization devices
  • Neurostimulation devices

Silicones used in long-term implants must always be biocompatible, reliable, precise, flexible and durable, efficiently ensuring the protection of sensitive components from corrosive body fluids.

Our Silbione® Biomedical grade silicone ingredients and formulations meet the highest quality standards and are custom-designed to provide dependable and safe materials for patients and final users, while being easy to process and cost effective for manufacturers. We work closely on a case-by-case basis with manufacturers to meet current needs. This is sustained by long-term R&D partnerships to develop new products and meet evolving market demand and regulatory requirements. We also offer complete support services through our worldwide network, including reliable procurement and technical services.

Silbione® Biomedical Grade silicone materials are designed and manufactured to meet the strict regulatory, quality, and purity requirements of the long term implant (≥30 days in the body) market.
