There are an estimated six million people walking the earth today with implanted devices that contain key biomaterials from DSM. Our strength in biomaterials comes from a unique convergence of our expertise in strong, lightweight, flexible polymers and our knowledge of human cells and chemistry. The result is the development of biomaterials that are capable of interacting with the body safely, long term.
The overarching goal of DSM in the biomedical field is to provide materials to device manufacturers that enable their products to treat or prevent disease, save lives and preserve the quality of life for patients everywhere.
Bionate® PCU and Bionate® II PCU
Bionate® Thermoplastic Polycarbonate-urethane (PCU) is recognized as an industry-leading medical grade polymer for long-term use in the body and has been used in chronic implants for almost two decades.
Bionate® II PCU uses proprietary DSM Self-Assembling Monolayer End Group (SAME®) technology, enabling customized surface characteristics to address device-specific requirements, making it well suited for chronically implanted devices. More>
BioSpan® Segmented Polyurethane (SPU) is a medical-grade polymer with superior mechanical characteristics that, among other benefits, is designed to withstand high flex fatigue. More>
CarboSil® Thermoplastic Silicone-Polycarbonate-urethane (TSPCU) is a ground-breaking copolymer that combines the benefits of silicone and polyurethane to create a material with exceptional toughness and biocompatibility that is also easy to process. More>
Elasthane™ Thermoplastic Polyether-urethane (TPU) is a high strength, aromatic, biomedical polymer with an impressive combination of mechanical properties and biological compatibility to support long-term implantation. More>
PurSil® Thermoplastic Silicone-Polyether-urethane (TSPU) is a novel copolymer that is strong yet flexible with proven biocompatibility and biostability. More>
