Americhem offers medical engineered compounds for respiratory oxygen delivery devices with polymer bases that include thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) and thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). We tailor our products to meet critical standards and specific application requirements based on a product’s end-use and environmental exposure. For respiratory gas delivery, UV additives can be introduced to improve stability and endurance. Our chemical-resistant plastics expertise allows us to compound the appropriate combination of materials, making it possible for nondisposable medical devices to withstand repeated cleaning and disinfection. And for respiratory care products that need permanent lubrication, our InLube™ internally lubricated compounds offer reduced friction and improved wear resistance. Collaborate with Americhem’s engineers today for a custom formulation that can be locked to protect your investment.
Respiratory care device manufacturers know that even the smallest choices can significantly impact patient comfort and satisfaction. Americhem offers extensive experience designing and creating biocompatible medical compounds that ease the way for product softness and ergonomic designs. From ultra-soft nasal cannulas and exceptionally soft medical tubing to contoured facemasks for oxygen delivery systems, our unique formulas help create products that not only maintain adequate oxygenation but reduce skin irritation and tissue pressure with a soft-touch feel.
With several factors driving anticipated growth for respiratory care devices globally, Americhem has the competency and capacity to meet the ever-changing demands of the healthcare community. Our stocks of relevant raw material, extensive design and testing capabilities, and expansive clean compounding facility make us an ideal partner for all your respiratory care products, such as medical-grade tubing and adapters, bubble humidifiers, venturi masks, CPAP/BiPAP masks, nonbreather/emergency bag valve masks, endotracheal tubes and respiratory ventilator circuits. Whether you are ramping up production of medical oxygen delivery systems related to the outbreak of Covid-19 or trying to keep pace with the increased prevalence of respiratory diseases, Americhem delivers reliability and scalability with competitive lead times.
In 2021, Americhem completed a plant expansion in Morrisville, Pennsylvania, that includes a 20,000-square-foot clean compounding facility – the largest of its kind in the world – dedicated solely to clean compounding for medical device manufacturers. At the facility, we work alongside our clients to develop, produce and test new and innovative products from start to finish. The facility maintains ISO 9001 and 13485 certifications, allowing us to engineer the highest quality materials with the utmost care and expertise in a state-of-the-art, positive-pressure, temperature-controlled, clean environment. We take pride in the fact that our innovative, cutting-edge healthcare application development continues to support leading medical device manufacturers around the world.
