MEDICAL POLYMER COMPOUNDING FACILITIES
IN THE CENTRE OF IRELAND

IPC – Innovative Polymer Compounds’ facilities have state of the art equipment for the manufacture of medical device polymer compounds. IPC uses Mann & Hummell closed loop drying technology fitted with agitated stirred hoppers. This allows us to compound, on a continuous basis, large batches of moisture sensitive polymers such as Peba, Polyurethanes, Polycarbonates, Resorbables, etc, ensuring industry-leading standards of drying technology for this exacting area in medical compounded materials.

All polymers are compounded in a white room facility using Leistritz twin screw extruder – ZSE 27 MAXX – 40 L/D technology. K-Tron gravimetric dosing technology is used,  capable of feeding granules or powders.

The compound is then pelletised either via Gala underwater or Rieter strand pelletisers.

The compounding process is controlled by Siemens Macromatex S7 Professional (S7 PLC) motion software.

This software enables accurate diagnostics, batch control and data storage as well as consistent feeding and dosing accuracy from as low as ±0.1% deviation to ensure product consistency throughout the batch. It also provides complete recordings of process parameters for each batch produced along with full raw material traceability.

IPC’s in-house test laboratory is fully equipped and up-to-date. Machinery available for the preparation of test specimens include an Arburg Allrounder 320C injection moulding machine, a Brabender Plasticorder with single screw extrusion and mixing head capabilities and a Servitec
Compression press.
