Bioabsorbable Fastener

Micro Materials: This device is made of PLG (L-lactide/glycolide copolymer), a bioabsorbable polymer.

Micro Features: The bioabsorbable fastener has two hollow legs connected by a flexible “bridge” and features sharp tips. Its flash allowance is 0.1mm max.

Description: A client approached MTD with their fastener design, seeking a product with minimal inherent viscosity loss and crisper features to improve functionality. While most competitors have difficulty realizing less than a 20% IV loss, MTD developed a superior bioabsorbable fastener with an IV loss of less than 4%.

Medical micro injection molding is what we do. And all we do.

We’ve made millions of micromolded medical parts. We have 15 years of expertise in working with bioabsorbable materials and problem-solving the most challenging micro part designs.

Bioabsorbable materials are very sensitive – and often very expensive. A successful bioabsorbable product will not only have premium part quality, but will also be a result of optimized runner size, which minimizes cost. Bioabsorbable devices also require more careful validation steps to achieve minimal and consistent IV loss and ensure superior functionality and capabilities.

Do you have a challenging bioabsorbable design?

Have you tried working with another manufacturer, who has yet to successfully build your design?

Our experienced team will help you refine and develop your design, so you can produce a high quality medical device and get it to market quickly.
