Surgical Devices and Trays

Surgical devices include tools used to perform or support specific procedures as well as orthopedic instruments used to prepare and trial implants. Many of these instruments require sterilization and handling throughout the hospital system using a wide variety of trays. To help address the issue of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), SABIC offers a broad range of materials that can withstand even the most severe sterilization methods while also providing property retention.

As devices also become smaller and more complex due to the increase in minimally invasive surgeries and the inclusion of electronics, specialized materials are needed to address strength, durability and the design challenges of miniaturization. SABIC offers solutions to meet these challenges with a specialized portfolio of materials which allow OEMs the potential to switch from reusable metal devices to single-use devices made with plastic – an effective strategy to help reduce HAIs.
