is limited to external use or for short term implant applications of 29 days or less.
NuSil Technology offers a complete line of silicone materials for use in the health care industry.
In 1993 NuSil Technology was uniquely positioned to respond to the availability crisis of silicone
materials for use in long term implant applications in the medical device market. Well established
in the medical silicone market and having firsthand knowledge of the products that were being
discontinued, NuSil Technology responded to this situation by providing over 25 replacement products
that are clones of discontinued originals manufactured by other companies. Masterfiles and test data
compendia (including physical, chemical and biological testing) are made available on all NuSil
Technology medical products to ease approval through the FDA
on vendor changes, 510Ks, IDEs and
Using this expertise, NuSil Technology expanded this line of high performance silicones to offer
competitively priced materials for use in external applications or for medical devices implanted
up to 29 days in the body. Many of these silicone biomaterials are used in applications requiring
USP Class VI certifications. Full testing and traceability are offered on these products as well.
For over 30 years we've been advancing the standards for manufacturing silicone products and this
experience allows us to offer a broad spectrum of standard and customer formulations with unparalleled
lot-to-lot consistency. As an ISO
9001 certified company, all materials are manufactured and processed under strictly controlled
conditions and are completely traceable.
