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 formats of implantable biomaterials are converted at J-Pac Medical?
- 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 particulate-free cutting?
Steel rule die cutting of medical grade textiles can provide unwanted fracturing or particulate generation. J-Pac Medical offers cutting methods that are housed in Class 7 cleanrooms and provide cut parts that are free of cutting-generated particulate. This is very important considering many of the components that we cut are destined to be surgically implanted or are utilized in critical filtering processes.
Biomaterials can degrade quickly. How can J-Pac help?
Absorbable biomaterials degrade when exposed to moisture and heat. This can be significant when devices undergo the total cycle from manufacturing, packaging, transport to sterilization, and exposure to sterilization humidity and elevated temperatures. J-Pac has a unique process designed to mitigate these issues. Cleanroom assembly is conducted in a special humidity-controlled cleanroom. EtO sterilization in completed in-house and with lower temperature cycles. Once sterilized, the biomaterial devices are quickly packaged, dried or gas-flushed, and sealed. A process that normally takes weeks can be done in a few days.
