Carpinteria, CA (PRWEB) June 2, 2008
NuSil Technology, a cutting-edge manufacturer of silicone compounds for the healthcare, drug delivery and pharmaceutical industries, announced the completion of a study in hydrophilic silicone formulations. The results of the study were presented at the 2008 World Biomaterials Congress and demonstrate the company's commitment to expand and create innovative products for the medical device and drug delivery market.
In 2007, NuSil launched a multiphase study to demonstrate the effects of modifying silicone polymers with hydrophilic groups. The first phase illustrated how variations in silicone chemistry can influence its compatibility with the surrounding environment. The second phase expands on the initial findings. In addition to the Biomaterials Conference, the company plans to discuss this research at Medical Design & Manufacturing East in New York, June 3-5.
