​Sustained collaboration for long-term implants

Manufacturers of long-term medical implants (defined as devices inserted in the human body for more than 29 days) use silicone ingredients and formulations to make a wide range of products, such as tubing and drains, drug delivery systems, pacemakers, vaginal rings (IUD devices) and audiology applications.  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 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.
