Minnesota Rubber and Plastics

Quniton materials are for medical developers in need of lubricious materials with permanent, low coefficient of friction (CoF) surface properties. Quniton enhances medical devices’ performance with surface properties that minimize friction, wear, and abrasion in medical valves, plungers, caps, and seals. Offering a biocompatibility USP Class VI and ISO 10993-5 certification of the base material, Quniton maintains its original form and sealing force, retaining integrity throughout a product’s life cycle. Quniton resists severe chemical exposure to acids, bases, and solvents with thermal stability at temperatures as high as 500°F (262°C).

Quniton’s low CoF provides resistance to bonding or sticking to a wide variety of materials and itself and therefore is a good aide in assembly and disassembly operations.

Certified Qmonix elastomer 912T
Developed for use in bio-compatible applications where tear resistance and

mechanical durability are required, Qmonix Elastomer 912T is low compression set and has excellent resistance to water and steam environments. Qmonix 912T exhibits high dielectric strength and has been tested in accordance with ISO-10993-5 and USP Class VI requirements.

Application potential for Qmonix 912T includes endoscope (trocar) seals, electrosurgical devices, implantable pulse generators & pacemakers, trocar, as well as Minnesota Rubber and Plastics’ branded products such as Quad Brand O-Rings, Quad-Ring Seals, and Quad Brand Ground Rubber Balls.
