Medical And Healthcare Applications
The Gund Company is a vertically integrated manufacturer and fabricator of engineered material solutions with over 65 years of experience using the latest technology and distinctive service.
We offer a broad range of plastic and elastomeric materials and finished parts found in the medical and healthcare industry.
Personal Face Shields
Our face shield features a transparent plastic shield for service protection and a foam band that goes around the forehead for shield attachment. An elastic band is fitted to secure the face shield in place.
The Gund Company manufactures, and custom fabricates Panels for use in X-Ray environments. We can manufacture imaging plates to meet your exact specifications and print anything required on the surface.
Radiolucent Bed Panels allow a patient to be moved from the care bed to the X-Ray room without leaving the mattress. For patients with injuries that require minimal movement, this ability is extremely important. The Gund Company offers bed panels with excellent chemical and abrasion resistance and a high strength-to-weight ratio. Our material can be custom fabricated to meet any size bed.
The Gund Company manufactures filters to prevent cross-contamination of regulators and wall vacuum outlets. These filters can also be used to prevent foreign object debris in other fluids and air.
Medical Grade Gaskets and Seals
Our material experts have over 40 years’ experience in material knowledge and design. We specialize in helping our customers choose the right sealing device, whether they’re creating something new or improving a current design.
