Top 10 Material Considerations for Overmolding Medical Devices

When it comes to overmolding medical devices, material considerations are critical.

All materials must seamlessly mate and bond with each other to ensure medical device integrity.

Careful consideration must also be paid to device-intended applications and environment exposure.

Below, are the top 10 material considerations for overmolding medical devices:

  1. Sterilization
  2. Radiation
  3. High Heat
  4. Chemical Exposure
  5. Flame Retardancy
  6. Impact Resistance
  7. Melting Point
  8. Biocompatibility
  9. Solvent Resistance
  10. Cost
