Future trend: Barrier concepts for medical technology

Advances in medical technology are taking place at an ever increasing pace. Ever more implants and medical products are being developed in order to improve our quality of life.

Optimal biocompatibility is vital to prevent rejection or immune responses to these foreign materials.

Using our ORMOCER® products we are developing new materials which combine both barrier protection and functionality for medical applications.

The aim of the Fraunhofer ISC is to make barrier materials available that can withstand these extremely demanding conditions. This development work is being undertaken in close collaboration with medical centers and industry.
