TPU Packaging Solutions
AQF Medical manufacture a range of Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) packaging solutions for orthopaedic hip & knee implants. TPU is a high strength, aromatic biomedical polymer with an impressive combination of mechanical properties and biological compatibility.
Why use TPU?
With its excellent mechanical, puncture and abrasion properties, TPU is an ideal material for use in many medical device applications. Design engineers are increasingly choosing TPU for medical applications, thanks to the material’s desirable chemical properties, excellent mechanical characteristics and biocompatibility.

While there are many grades of TPU to choose from, processing flexibility is a consistent feature of TPU regardless of which chemistry is selected. This provides medical device design engineers with numerous packaging alternatives as the TPU can be injection-moulded, thermoformed, die-cut, and welded into multiple shapes and sizes. The AQF Medical engineering team are available to assist customers with material selection and product packaging design .
AQF Medical have extensive expertise in designing and manufacturing cleanroom foam packaging solutions for our global orthopaedic implant customers with particular focus on hip, knee, and spine implant solutions. We also offer thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) packaging components which offer excellent abrasion and puncture protection for orthopaedic implants.
