The Right Partner for Implantable Medical Textile Assembly
J-Pac Medical is the right contract manufacturing partner for assembling medical textile devices of custom shapes and sizes. While we can assist in the selection of raw material suppliers, our focus is on manufacturing medical devices containing implantable medical textiles in 2D or 3D geometries to meet unique anatomical and biological specifications. We are experts in manufacturing using difficult to handle materials due to our extensive experience with medical grade polymer formats.
We have unique processing technology in forming textiles without compromising the mechanical properties of the material. We also offer attachment options without the need for sewing.
Contract manufacturing of medical textiles is our business, and some of the largest healthcare companies in the world rely on us for assembling custom textile-based medical devices used in cardiac, tissue repair, hernia, sports medicine, and allograft processing.

What assembly processes can be performed for biomedical textile implants?
Allograft Tissue Bag
An allograft tissue processing bag with closure string. The bag holds bone during demineralization processing.
J-Pac Medical performs cutting, 3-dimensional forming, embossing, thermal and ultrasonic bonding, and sewing in the assembly of biomedical textile implants and devices. Biomedical textiles are also fabricated for non-implant uses such as allograft processing and filtering.
What formats of implantable biomaterials are converted at J-Pac Medical?
Medical Textile Tapes
Braided textile tapes used for medical implants.
- The braid materials are typically multifilament strands that are used broadly in sutures and sports medicine applications.
- Woven materials are fabrics that are dense (low pore size) and are dimensionally stable in all directions. These are typically used in wound care and critical filtration applications.
- The knitted materials are more open structures (larger pore size) that typically display a stretchy direction and a stable direction. These are used in soft tissue repair applications as well as filtration applications.
- The Non-woven materials are dense and strong. These materials are used broadly as tissue protecting sewing rings or pledgets in a broad range of cardiovascular applications.
What is edge treatment?
3D Mesh Assembly
Polypropylene medical mesh formed and welded into a soft tissue repair device.
When woven or knitted textiles are cut, the integral construction of the fabric is broken and the construction can begin to unravel. Edge treatment processes offered by J-Pac Medical recreate an unbroken edge at the point of cutting that will maintain the original fabric construction and stop any fraying. The created edge also improves handling in surgery and improves tissue passage.
