Applications

As polymer specialists, we serve the medical device and pharmaceutical industries by specifying, developing and characterizing custom polymers to your specifications. Regardless of the stage of polymer development you’re in, we offer specific, high-quality capabilities to fit your needs.

Custom Polymers for the Medical Device & Pharmaceutical Industries

The medical device and pharmaceutical industries often require specific and customized polymers that are not readily available on the market. At Chempilots, we develop and characterize custom polymers to your specifications, regardless of the stage of product development you’re in.

Industries Requiring Specialty Polymers

Chempilots is proud to serve clients through the US, Australia and European markets. For over 60 years, we’ve used our expertise and state-of-the-art technology to develop custom specialty polymers, from initial research to custom contract manufacturing.

We work with medical device and pharmaceutical companies that require specialty polymers for research and development as well as for commercial use. From hydrogels and coatings to excipients, we can develop a polymer that fits your needs.

Medical Devices

Medical devices require polymers for highly specific functions. From 3D print structures to thermoplastics and adhesives to biodegradables, Chempilots develops high-quality custom polymers to fit your specific application.

Pharmaceutical

Pharmaceutical polymers must meet all processability, stability and therapeutic response requirements. Chempilots has years of expertise in helping companies develop specialty polymers to meet critical release profiles.

Cosmetics

Chempilots also develops polymers found in cosmetics such as hyaluronic acid, which is commonly found in anti-aging products. Cosmetic polymers are also used as thickeners, structuring agents and delivery agents for antioxidants.

Types of Polymers

Chempilots has the capabilities to develop a wide range of custom specialty polymers used throughout the medical device and pharmaceutical industries. Plus, we’re able to support you throughout the entire polymer development process from synthesis to polymer analysis.

Drug Delivery

We specialize in developing polymers for drug delivery applications, including those used for slow-dose release (extended-release) drugs. Polymers in this family include microparticles, micelles, polyplexes, drug conjugates, implants and other examples. Our capabilities ensure your polymer meets critical drug requirements such as release period and permeation.

Biodegradable Polymers

Biodegradable polymers are used for diverse applications. They must also be engineered correctly to breakdown after their intended purpose. Chempilots has developed various types of polymers for numerous applications such as surgical sutures, medical implants, tissue regeneration and nanotechnology.

Wetting Agents

Wetting agents are used to reduce surface tension so a liquid or solid can easily spread. These polymers are found in hydrogels and poly-HEMA applications, which are often used for medical devices such as contact lenses and urology catheters..
