INNOVATIVE POLYMER COMPOUNDS (IPC)

When Material Excellence Matters

INNOVATIVE POLYMER COMPOUNDS (IPC)

  • Compounds polymers solely for the Medical Device Industry
  • Has completely transparent Certificates of Conformity (COC) and Certificates of Analysis (COA)
  • ISO 13485 certified
  • Specialises in Short Lead-times
  • Flexible lot sizes, from 5kg to 5000kg
  • Works with Designers, Moulders and Extruders
  • Works together with its customers from Concept through R&D all the way to Production
  • Performs its own colour matching using a base range of FDA approved pigments which achieves tighter and more consistent colour tolerances as well as short lead times for coloured compounds to Pantone, Munsell or RAL references.

Extraordinary Devices deserve Extraordinary Compounds

About Us

Our new state of the art compounding facility encompasses all of the features a customer would require of a 100K clean room, with accurate control of air quality, dust extraction and temperature control in each of our material process halls.

Facilities

All polymers are compounded in a class 100K clean room using a Leistritz twin screw extruder - a ZSE 27 MAXX – 40 L/D. This extruder is capable of outputs up to 120 kg per hour. The compounder is fed by four K-Tron gravimetric dosing units, each one capable of feeding granules or powders. The compound is then pelletised either via a Gala underwater pelletiser or a Rieter strand pelletiser.

Quality in Medical Polymer Compounding

IPC is both ISO 13485 and ISO 9001 certified.

At Innovative Polymer Compounds (IPC) our Quality Management System is the cornerstone of Medical Polymer Compounding. From materials management to key process parameters, customer care, research and development, all feed from our exacting standards and the company commitment to excel with all of the Medical Compounds we produce, and with the Medical Device Customers we serve. A wide range of materials testing is carried out to ISO and ASTM standards covering Mechancial / Colour / Ash Content / Tensile / Moisture Parameters.

Material

From the facility, which was set up in 2008 and is certified to ISO 9001, IPC processes a wide range of polymers on behalf of medical device manufacturers all over Europe. Polymers with which the company is most familiar include Arkema’s Rilsan, Pebax and Kynar, Lubrizol and BASF’s TPU’s, EMS’s Grilamid range, DuPont’s Surlyn, Evonik’s Vestamid and Solvay’s Solef and Hylar PVDF.
