X ray opaque polyurethanes
By Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences & Technology(SCTIMST)
For Fabrication of radiopaque medical devices (e.g., catheters, tubings, etc), Radiopaque coatings for medical or non-medical devices, X-ray shielding devices. Finds application in both medical and non-medical applications wherever X-ray shielding is important.
Product Design and Silent Features
Polyurethane materials with iodine in the polymer chain. They are produced by iodinating diols and incorporating them in the polymer chain during the polymerization process.These are light weight polymeric materials with in-built X-ray opacity. No radiopaque additives are added in the polymer.Patent application filed.
Development Stage
In development stage –collaborative work with industry solicited for different applications.
