Monolithic Industries (MI) can compound and mix active pharmaceutical additives and polymers using a melt extrusion process. Specialized small batch equipment allow drugs and multi polymer systems to be combined and extruded into multiple medical device formats:
1. COMBINE MIX EXTRUDE FINAL PRODUCT…. in one processing step:
MI uses specialized mixing technology that allows sequential, ONE STEP compounding and extrusion processing of required forms for biomedical device creation.
MICRO PELLETS - [ 0.020 - 0.065 INCH ] [0.50 mm - 1.65 mm ]
STANDARD PELLETS - [0.065 - 0.125 INCH ] [1.65 mm - 3.18mm ]
Single and multi layer
| FILM / SHEET
CAST FILM - [ 0.001 - 0.010 INCH ] [ 0.0254 - 0.254 mm ]
SHEET FILM - [0.010 - 0.100 INCH ] [ 0.254 - 2.54 mm ]
[ 0.005 to 0.100 INCH ] [ 0.127 to 2.54 mm ]
Bio re-sorbables, nylons and other polymers [ 0.5 dpf - 30 dpf ] [ 0.75 dtex - 40 dtex ]. 5 to 300 filament capability
Sutures, threads, resorbable wound dressing material
2. Trials /Development / Production performed with as little as 50 grams of polymer.
MI specializes in micro-scale extruders, compounders and reagent mixing methods. Pharmaceutical actives and polymers are often very expensive and degrade in large scale extrusion machinery used by other processors. We specialize in rapid, small batch feasibility trials.
3. All Bioresorbable / Implant, Pharma, engineering and experimental Polymers possible with and without additives.
