Micro Molding with Bioabsorbables

Not Your Average Thermoplastics

This whitepaper explores Micro Molding with Bioabsorbables. Across the board with plastics, the rules are different when you mold it so small. But when it comes to bioabsorbable resins, they require a much more extensive and specialized approach than thermoplastics. By learning how processing bioabsorbables differs from thermoplastics, medical OEMs can understand the key factors needed for optimizing the design and production of their bioabsorbable products.
