Materials

Baril has worked with thousands of advanced materials and has developed a unique understanding of how substrates, adhesives and other materials behave during complex processing.

As a preferred partner with leading materials suppliers, our team works closely to help customers select, refine and optimize materials that will best suit an application. And because we are independent, we will ensure you get the best combination of materials for processing, post-process assembly, and final use.

Adhesives

Our stick to skin adhesive expertise covers the full range of applications and issues, including: hypoallergenic, low-trauma, repeat insult, length of wear, weight supporting capacity and sterilization compatibility.

  • Acrylic
  • Rubber and Synthetic
  • Hot Melt
  • Silicone
  • Heat Activated
  • Thermoplastics
  • Electrically Conductive
  • Medical Grade and Skin Contact
  • Direct and Indirect Food Contact
  • VHB and UHA
  • Low Surface Energy (LSE)

Films & Plastics

Baril’s deep understanding of roll plastic and film qualities such as moisture vapor transfer rates, drape, and the ability to laminate to other components of the device, helps our engineers fine-tune designs and improve manufacturability.

  • Polyurethane
  • Polyester (PET) including APET, RPET, and PETG
  • Polypropylene (PP) including OPP and BOPP
  • Polyimide (Kapton)
  • Polycarbonate (Lexan, Acrylic)
  • Polyethylene including HDPE and LDPE
  • Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA)
  • Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)

Foams & Elastomers

New technologies are creating great opportunities for product development with foam and elastomer materials for those who know how to work with them. Our engineers have helped create new products and improve existing products across a broad range of categories.

  • Urethane
  • Polyethylene
  • Silicone
  • Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
  • Neoprene
  • Santoprene
  • Poron

Molding Plastics

Sterilization and bio-compatibility are major issues when it comes to designing medical devices with injection molded parts. Specific knowledge about how amorphous and crystalline plastics perform under a variety of situations allows Baril engineers to solve both application and manufacturing issues early, in the development phase, vs. later on.

Speciality Materials

No matter how esoteric the material or application, our team will work with your team and materials vendors to explore and develop the optimal solution for your product.

  • Filter media
  • Hydrogel
  • Hydrocolloid
  • Non-wovens
  • Medical membranes
  • VELCRO ® Brand Hook and Loop
  • Ostomy Tapes
