Evonik offers a wide range of polymer systems customised to suit the technical requirements of the medical device. The materials can be used to fabricate flexible or rigid device components that are transparent or translucent. Care products have been used in such medical devices as catheters for vascular treatment, surgical instruments, and selector valves for infusion equipment.

In designing the products in the Vestamid Care and Trogamid Care lines, the formulator works closely with customers. This not only makes it possible to provide precisely tailored custom solutions, but also enables the company to pick up on and respond to current trends in the medical device industry. Evonik assists customers throughout the product development cycle, from material development to manufacture of the finished product.
