MPU 100

Biocompatible, sterilizable, and chemically resistant

Biocompatible, sterilizable, and durable

MPU 100 is Carbon’s first medical-grade material, designed to help medical product manufacturers accelerate product development cycles and improve the quality of their products.  The material offers a unique combination of biocompatibility, sterilizability, and durability, in addition to engineering-grade mechanical properties, abrasion resistance, and chemical resistance. MPU 100 is comparable to medical-grade ABS.

A master file is available at the FDA.

Example Applications

These applications combine a need for mechanical strength, biocompatibility, and sterilizability, in addition to isotropy, great surface finish, and accuracy.

It is the sole responsibility of the Subscriber or manufacturer of the end-use-product to determine that the final product, including any products manufactured using Carbon Products, meets relevant testing and biocompatibility requirements and is otherwise safe and effective for its intended use.
