Sector overview

Equipment used in the medical sector is subject to a continuous process of technological innovation, and also to stringent constraints imposed by sector regulations.
LATI has both the expertise and the cutting-edge materials necessary to overcome both of these challenges.
It delivers solutions to the complex problems of resistance to: disinfectants and sterilisation, X-rays, heat and mechanical stress.
Antibacterial products can also be formulated where necessary

X-ray equipment

The need for lead protection against X-rays is a key problem associated with equipment that uses radiation for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes.
LATI radiopaque compounds, which are non-toxic and RoHS compliant, can provide total shielding while avoiding the problems associated with the handling and disposal of heavy metals.
For cases in which, on the other hand, X-ray transparency is required, LATI offers structural grades that are completely invisible with all analysis techniques.

Electromedical devices

The experience acquired by LATI in the E&E sector has been transferred to electromedical devices.
Alongside its classic certified self-extinguishing, self-lubricating and structural compounds for metal replacement, LATI provides electrically conductive flexible materials for sensors and electrodes, thermally conductive materials for heaters and probes, and magnetisable, EMI shielding materials suitable for use in ultrasound and laser equipment.

Medical and laboratory equipment

Is resistance to disinfectants and sterilisation cycles a problem?
Sulphonated amorphous polymers can be used to produce perfectly sterilisable trays, handpieces, containers and transparent parts.
Do you need X-ray contrast?
Grades filled with ceramic or tungsten are visible using various radiological techniques.
Do you have other requirements?
Electrically and thermally conductive, self-lubricating and structural materials can provide the answer.
