About Welding of Thin Polymeric Films For Medical Applications

Nearly all thermoplastics can be used in film form as thin, soft, flexible, elastomeric materials that can be folded or creased without damage. In selecting films for medical devices. The factors to be considered include cost, biocompatibility, sterilizability, mechanical toughness, elasticity, optical clarity, leachability, barrier properties, drug interaction, and sealing and assembly characteristics.


Films most commonly used in the medical industry include high- and low-density polyethylene and polypropylenes , plasticized PVC, polyurethane elastomers, and breathable specialty films such as polyester. A clear understanding is required not only of a material’s properties, but also of how a particular welding process will affect it.


The weldability of plastics is affected by various factors, including type of polymer; resin grade; presence of plasticizers, lubricants, and other additives; and moisture content. Thermal properties, molecular characteristics, and crystallinity of a polymer affect processing and film properties; additives influence extrusion and orientation processes and improve film properties; and reductions in the thickness of a film can lower costs and increase the area obtained from a given weight of polymer yield per square meter.


In the 1970s, PVC became the material of choice for Band-Aids, and later the use of polymeric film patches in surgical draping became popular, replacing latex films. In the 1990s, the use of organ bags, drug-delivery patches, and breathable films for wound care increased dramatically, making films much in demand in the medical industry. However, health and environmental concerns about PVC and latex films have driven the development of alternative materials for these applications.


Thermoplastic polyurethane, is well suited for use in flexible medical products such as storage and collection bags and other types of flexible containers and similar articles.


Polyurethane films offer some important advantages over other films, including PVC. They have similar welding characteristics to PVC, provide strength equal to PVC in a thinner film, contain no plasticizers, are sterilizable by either EtO or gamma radiation, and have good alcohol resistance. Polyurethane films also can be readily sealed using radio frequency (RF) welding techniques.
