Mesh - Cords
The raw materials mostly used are PP and PET. Luxilon has a standard, medical approved PP available, but we extrude also raw materials supplied and validated by our customers.
For PET and PP we selected a grade and conducted the necessary bio-medical and physico-chemical testing. The material Master file and these data are also shared with our customers upon request.
Most used diameters are 76, 100 and 152 micron, standards in the mesh for hernia repair production.
Of course other diameters can be supplied upon request in close collaboration with the customer.
All parameters like tensile strength, diameter, roundness, shrinkage are closely monitored per batch and registered in our QA system.
These data are shared with the customers in order to meet their specifications.
Sterimed can be natural colored or in blue or green.
Sterimed contains spin finish to facilitate the further textile processing. Different spin finishes are available.
The type and amount is set in cooperation with the customer. The spin finish is easily removed in the washing process.
Luxilon has ISO 13485 and can produce in a cleanroom from Q2/2017.
