Using Porous Plastics for Venting

On-Demand Webinar

Why watch this on-demand webinar

From common household electronics to critical medical devices, venting is an essential application that ensures both high-tech and low-tech devices used everyday function properly in their respective environments. Not all devices are alike and thus require different venting solutions.

Design manufacturers can specify their venting needs based on configuration, pore size, air flow rate, adhesion level and material – as well as standard venting solutions across various materials. Whether a device needs to relieve pressure, allow for cooling or protect contents from an external environment, the correct venting solution can help manufacturers develop higher quality products with a maximized lifespan for electronics and other sealed or closed systems.   In a medical device, “active” venting solutions can also maintain the sterility of the device or formulation, provide a bacterial barrier, minimize contamination, control odors, and much more. 

When you attend this webinar, you will:

  • Understand the science behind active and passive venting specific to medical devices
  • Discover the benefits of design flexibility for venting using porous polymers (e.g. complex 3D components, adhesive vents, etc.)
  • Learn how porous materials can be used to add functionality to the device beyond “traditional” passive venting
  • See the various material options – sintered PE, PTFE and track-etched membranes – in action with specific examples
