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. Similar to Carbon’s rigid polyurethane materials, MPU 100 is a two component material that produces isotropic parts with fine features.

The material offers a unique combination of biocompatibility, sterilizability, and durability, in addition to engineering-grade mechanical properties, abrasion resistance, and chemical resistance. Carbon has performed biocompatibility testing with documentation to support the material passing USP-VI and ISO 10993-5 and -10. Additionally, MPU 100 is sterilizable using ethylene oxide, e-beam, and gamma, and maintains its biocompatibility (i.e. passes cytotoxicity testing) post-sterilization.

A master file is available at the FDA.

MPU 100 is suitable for medical products and devices, consumer health care products, and drug contact applications including*:
– Components of medical equipment systems (e.g. covers, guards, adapters)
– Skin contact applications (e.g. prosthetics)
– Single-use surgical instruments (e.g. handles, guides, trials)
– Drug contact devices (e.g. inhalers, auto-injectors, pill bottles, single use bioprocessing devices)

*Note: 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.
