Medical Material Approvals | LSR HCR Platinum or Peroxide
What approvals do I need?
This depends on many things, but the following questions should always be addressed:
- Does the target market demand specific approvals?
- Does your insurance company demand specific approvals?
- Does it need to be implantable for more than 29 days?
- Does it need to be resistant to certain chemicals?
- Must it be able to withstand sterilisation methods (e.g. autoclaving)?
- Should it be resistant to weather/ozone/UV?
- What physical characteristics are required?
- Does it need to be pigmented (i.e. will it be coloured or transparent?
- Are there cost constraints? What is the proposed manufacturing technique?
- We always recommend that you look at the original source of these approvals when assessing suitable materials for your own product.
