Elastomedic, an Australian company which developed the Elast-Eon polymeric material, has opened a polymer processing facility in Chatswood, New South Wales. The product has attracted strong interest from several major international medical device companies, says Elastomedic, which hopes that it will come into clinical use within three years. Elastomedic has already granted UK-based Aortech an exclusive worldwide licence to use Elast-Eon in artificial heart valves.
