Specialty Engineered Materials – Medical
Fralock has been a trusted supplier of specialty engineered materials components for medical device manufacturers for over 50 years.
Our high-quality manufacturing standards are indicated by our certifications with ISO 13485, ISO 9001, and we are IPC 1791 listed and FDA registered. Fralock’s engineering experts help you design, develop, and manufacture custom solutions for an array of medical device applications. To provide the best quality products, we partner with leading suppliers that provide the highest performance materials.
For example, wearable medical devices can undergo significant wear from movement, fluctuating environmental conditions, and electrical interference. These factors can cause failure of the device electronics. The use of specialty engineered materials can mitigate these issues and maintain optimal device function as well as safety of the patient. Recent innovations of these materials and their role in wearables have produced improvements in skin adhesion and patient comfort, sealing out moisture and bacteria, EMI shielding, and integrated functions such as wearable sensors or insulin pumps. This is all achieved with smaller sized devices and longer lifetimes.
Whether you need parts for medical wearables, catheters, advanced would care, or biocompatible tapes/adhesives, Fralock can provide specialty materials components that fit your stringent requirements.
