DSM Biomedical announced new braiding technology for Dyneema Purity, the company’s ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) medical fiber.
The new constructions of Dyneema Purity fiber are available by means of a patented platform technology (Implantable Holding Device) developed by Switzerland-based textile processor Meister & Cie. This platform technology offers medical device manufacturers design freedom and possibilities for device miniaturization, according to DSM. In addition, DSM said the new technology also better enables the interfacing of textiles to other medical device components, reducing the amount of metal required in the device.
