Case Studies

Custom-Molded Rubber Duck Fittings and Gasket

Developing a custom material for trocar seal surgical applications

The customer’s existing material was often catching on surgical instruments and tearing during insertion, disrupting surgery. MN Rubber & Plastic’s team was able to develop a new cost-effective material compound and manufacturing process that matched every performance requirement.

Designing a seal to withstand four critical properties of chemical and mechanical stress

With an existing seal failing both chemical reagent exposure and long-term aging requirements on a critical COVID-19 point-of-care test, MN Rubber & Plastics provided the customer with a new materials formulation and geometry that surpassed customer expectations on functionality, delivery, and financial value.
