Foster Corporation is a specialty thermoplastic compounder with extensive experience in developing compounded materials for the medical device and electronics markets.

They have extensive experience in the following areas:

  • Radiopaque
  • Electrically conductive/static-dissipative
  • Reinforced
  • Lubricated
  • Anti-microbial
  • Crosslinked
  • Custom color
In addition Applied Polymer development is a focused Foster corporation resource that offers polymeric materials design, contract development and engineering services. Recently Foster developed a new product line named SEPôpolymers. Selectively Enhanced Polymers represent the latest in materials technology whereby selected properties are improved without detrimental trade-offs in other key properties.
  • Foster's new SEPô conductive urethanes combine static dissipation properties with the unique flexibility and mechanical properties of urethanes. Thermoplastics are inherently nonconductive and must be modified to dissipate electrical charges that can be damaging to component hardware or other electrical devices. Link to data sheet
  • Foster's new SEPô low friction urethanes combine low friction properties with the unique flexibility and mechanical properties of urethanes. Low friction properties are often required to enhance the function of mating components, including tubing assemblies, seals, and much more. Link to data sheet
  • SEPô nanocomposite nylons offer a substantial increase in rigidity and stiffness while maintaining a high degree of the elongation inherent in the base polymer. Increased stiffness without brittleness is often required for to enhance the mechanical performance of thin wall tubing, film and similar products. Link to data sheet.
