CarboSil® Thermoplastic Silicone-Polycarbonate-urethane (TSPCU)

CarboSil® TSPCU is a ground-breaking copolymer that combines the biocompatibility and biostability of conventional silicone elastomers with the processability and toughness of thermoplastic polycarbonate-urethanes. The silicone soft segment works synergistically with polycarbonate-based polyurethanes to improve in vitro and in vivo stability.

CarboSil® TSPCU is well suited to devices challenged by oxidative degradation.
