Sgel-Babies' skin to hard rubber ball Pure Medical-Grade Silicone Universally recognized and accepted by the medical community, silicone is consider to be the traditional top-of-the-line material for contact with the body. It is non-allergenic for most people. Silicone gels can be formulated for hardness ranging from very soft to very firm. They generally provide good shock resistance and shear force absorption. S-GELs are ideally suited for use in a wide range of medical products, including • orthopedic devices • prosthetic liners • wound and scar management • tubing and • catheters. They are often used as well in cosmetic and other personal care products.

Mgel-Gummy bear to soft pen grip Pure, Medical-Grade Mineral-Oil Thermoplastic Elastomers These mineral oil-based visco-elastic compounds are 100% medical grade, non-allergenic and dermatologist-tested. Available in soft to medium densities, they provide the flexibility for conforming easily to bony areas of the body, such as elbows, heels, fingers and toes. The distinguishing characteristic of M-GELS is that they exude mineral oil consistently throughout their product lifetimes. They can also be formulated to “carry” and time-release other oils, vitamins and other additives. These oils and additives soften, condition and comfort skin on contact, making M-GELS very effective for moisturizing skin-care applications. M-GELS are a cost-effective alternative to most silicone gel applications, including • medical orthopedic products • prosthetic and orthotic products and • wound care. They are highly suitable for use in • cosmetics • skin-hydration delivery systems and • consumer health care products.

Tge-Pencil eraser head to a rigid plasic case Versatile Standard Thermoplastic ElastomersT-GELS are oil-based TPE gels available in soft to firm durometers. Unlike mineral-oil based gels, T-GELS exude virtually much less oil on contact with the skin. They are formulated to absorb high shock and shear forces for high-impact applications. For practical purposes, T-GELS can be viewed as a hybrid between silicone and mineral-oil gels. They offer unique opportunities for matching the functionality of silicone at greatly reduced cost. T-GELS are ideal for use in cushioning and shock-absorption products such as • insoles and • heel cups. They also perform extremely well in uses ranging widely from • medical devices to • personal care appliances to • sporting good products.
