High-Quality Compounds

Choose from our specialty line of latex and non-latex compounds at KEP for high-quality, durable dip-molded medical device components. Compounds include natural rubber latex, neoprene, and synthetic polyisoprene. These materials can all be sterilized, which is ideal for medical applications. Not sure which compound is best for your application? Natural rubber is ideal for applications that require excellent tear strength, high resistance to abrasion, and superior flexibility – however, natural rubber latex carries proteins that can cause a Type I allergic reaction.

If allergies are a concern, neoprene and synthetic polyisoprene might be a better fit for your medical device components. In addition to being non-allergenic, neoprene is resistant to flames, oil (moderate), weather, ozone cracking, abrasion, flex cracking, alkalis, and acids. Synthetic polyisoprene also offers superb durability, resistance, and flexibility. Check out our Dipped Material Comparison Chart to learn more about which compound is ideal for your application based on characteristics, tensile strength, thickness range and more.

Meeting the Demands of the Medical Industry

Choose from a wide selection of shapes, sizes and wall thicknesses for your dip-molded medical device component applications. Part dimensions can range from 1″ (25.4mm) to 20″ (508mm) in length and .25″ (6.35mm) to 12″ (304.8mm) in diameter. Need an unusual size or shape? Ask KEP if we can accommodate your needs. KEP helps customers meet the demands of the medical industry by providing custom solutions. To help customers meet tough deadlines, we have the ability to run small to medium-run batches.

Prototype Development

From consultation and design to a working prototype, our prototype development process for dip-molded medical device components is low cost and efficient. We ask that customers provide forms with rounded contours to enable the material to flow during the dipping process – avoid sharp angles and flat surfaces that run parallel to the material’s surface.

Customers may provide forms or our experts can create a form and develop a prototype based on customer’s specifications. Providing our experts with detailed dimensional drawings helps ensure that we tool the forms accurately. We are able to do a prototype run for testing prior to production.
