Flashback ?YoDKuindow ? March 2003 About Welding of Thin Polymeric Films For Medical Applications From Editor’s Desk Nearly all thermoplastics can be used in film form as thin, soft, flexible, elastomeric materials Dear Readers, 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, The domestic medical device industry has advanced elasticity, optical clarity, leachability, barrier properties, drug interaction, and sealing and rapidly over the past twenty years since China started assembly characteristics. its economic reform policy in 1979. Presently, with 2900 medical device manufacturers, total output value Films most commonly used in the medical industry include high- and low-density polyethylene is USD 2 billion with a capacity to produce 12000 and polypropylenes , plasticized PVC, polyurethane elastomers, and breathable specialty specifications, 3500 varieties in 47 categories. By the films such as polyester. A clear understanding is required not only of a material’s properties, year 2000, total output value was expected to reach but also of how a particular welding process will affect it. USD 3.62 6.04 billion. Still the imported medical equipment and instruments The weldability of plastics is affected by various factors, including type of polymer; resin occupy 86 % of the total values meaning that China grade; presence of plasticizers, lubricants, and other additives; and moisture content. Thermal is a very promising market for the medical products. properties, molecular characteristics, and crystallinity of a polymer affect processing and film properties; additives influence extrusion and orientation processes and improve film Some of the favorable factors for the large potential properties; and reductions in the thickness of a film can lower costs and increase the area are release of import restrictions and development of obtained from a given weight of polymer yield per square meter. Medical & Hygiene Industry. This has resulted in increasing market demand for: 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 • High & New Technology Medical Products of organ bags, drug-delivery patches, and breathable films for wound care increased • Physical Therapy & Household Healthcare Products dramatically, making films much in demand in the medical industry. However, health and • OEM Products environmental concerns about PVC and latex films have driven the development of alternative materials for these applications.

In welding, heat is applied to melt the polymeric material at contacting surfaces enabling through intermolecular diffusion and polymeric chains entanglement process to form a joint. Welding processes for Medical Device assembly are often categorized and Identified by the heat method that is used. All processes can be divided into two major categories: External Heating and Internal Heating. Internal heating methods are further divided into two categories: internal mechanical heating and internal electromagnetic heating. External Heating method relies on convection and/or conduction to heat to the weld surface. These processes include hot tool, hot gas, extrusion, implant induction and implant resistance welding. Internal mechanical heating methods rely on conversion of mechanical energy into heat through surface friction and intermolecular friction. These Processes include ultrasonic, vibration and spin welding. Internal Electromagnetic heating methods rely on absorption and conversion of electromagnetic radiation into heat. These processes include infrared, laser, radio frequency and microwave welding. It is important to understand and compare different methods in order to determine which may be best for a given application. Some of the popular plastics welding methods for Medical Devices are presented here. May - June 2015 23

Economics Plasma Processing : often favor ultrasonic welding because cycle times are typically The medical device industry is highly regulated which demands very short. In ultrasonic welding, high-frequency vibrations reliable and reproducible components and manufacturing generate heat at the interface of the parts to be joined, melting processing. Bonding mismatched plastics can be challenging the plastic and creating a strong bond. Ultrasonic Welding is for engineers and technicians in medical device manufacturing, very popular technique for fusion and bonding of even when the proper adhesives are utilized for maximum thermoplastics and thermoplastic components. adhesion results. Low temperature gas plasma can be a simple, safe, This technique is efficient, non-contaminating and requires inexpensive, and powerful alternative to prepare materials for no consumables. It produces a clean weld site with highly bonding for the manufacture of medical devices.

Jose Paulo Pareira Editor of University of Porto Portugal The limitation of RF welding is due to the fact that a strong electric field must be generated and this can only be achieved when the welding electrodes are brought together in close proximity (0.03 to 1.27 mm). Another limitation of the process is that the materials being joined must have the proper electrical properties. Common applications include blister packs for packaging and medical applications such as IV bags and Urine Bags. Laser Welding When welding seams in the micrometer range are required, there is only one economical solution – laser plastic welding. Laser welding is a vibration-free, particulate-free, and, in most cases, flash-free process that is nearly silent.Other aspects make this joining technique additionally interesting for medical applications, such as: flexible production options, stress-free processing, very fine process control and hygienic high-precision processing chains – all assuring high quality and profitability.The process is nearly independent of part- 24 May - June 2015
