Medical Seals & Seals For Medical Devices

We have been designing seals for the medical industry for over 25 years. At Polymer Concepts, we understand the importance of reliability; failure is not acceptable in an operating environment. Today’s surgical instruments may require low friction for extended battery life and to protect the electric motor from water intrusion during the autoclave cleaning process. We have FDA compliant seal materials to meet the regulatory requirements.


Examples include:

  • Surgical hand pieces, drills, and saws
  • Robotic systems
  • Electric motors
  • Fluid pumps
  • Oxygen concentrator
