Micro Engineering Solutions is adept at silicone micro molding, with many customers demanding this material due to its elasticity, flexibility, and the fact that it is bio-inert.

Silicone’s suitability for medical applications is based on its advantageous mechanical and chemical properties, and the fact that it has good biological compatibility with human tissue and body fluids. As such, silicone is the ideal material for implantable medical devices. The “soft” nature of the raw material means that there are certain challenges when processing silicone, and Micro Engineering Solutions has decades of experience honing the silicone micro molding process to the benefit of its numerous medical device OEM customers.
