Overview of Products:
CYROLITE® compounds (G-20, G-20 HIFLO®, GS-90, CG-97, Med 2 and Protect) offer the very best balance of properties for MedicalDevice Applications.
- All grades of CYROLITE® compounds are engineered for applications where gamma or e-beam sterilization is required, with no loss in properties.
- CYROLITE® compounds can withstand the rigors of EtO sterilization protocols.
- CYROLITE® compounds are easy to process and can be used for very intricate to very large medical device parts.
- All grades are tough, transparent, bondable and chemical resistant.
- All grade are BPA and DEHP free
CYROLITE® Protect – CYROLITE® grades with antimicrobial properties intended for use with FDA – regulated Class I and Class II medical devices covered by 510(k) PMN submission.
XT® polymer has a long history on use in medical device packaging.
- Cost effective – its rigidity allows for down gaging sheet thickness to save cost.
- Strong – outstanding crush and impact strength
- Clear – very high light transmission with low haze
- Rigid – outstanding corner and wall strength – excels at deep draw packaging
- Sterilizable – compatible with EtO, gamma* and Ebeam*. No silicone contamination worries since it denests easily with the need for silicone denesting agents.
* In thin gauge applications
CYREX 200-8005 acrylic-polycarbonate alloy, an advanced alloy, is formulated specifically for the medical industry.
- Unique combination of properties that will enhance the performance of devices that are opaque.
- Exhibits exceptional toughness characteristics.
- Is chemically resistant to both alcohol and lipids.
- It is EtO, e-beam and gamma sterilizable, and easy to process.
- Can be processed at lower temperatures than-polycarbonate material, decreasing the cooling time which decreases the cycle time of an injection molding process.
CYREX® Protect – CYREX® grade with antimicrobial properties intended for use with FDA – regulated Class I and Class II medical devices covered by 510(k) PMN submission.
Vu-Stat™ static dissipative acrylic multipolymer compounds are transparent, electro-static dissipative compounds that have outstanding ESD properties and an excellent balance of mechanical, thermal and flow properties.
- Vu-Stat compounds provide permanent ESD protection for parts that are sensitive to static discharge.
- Vu-Stat compounds for medical device applications requiring a transparent, tough, anti-static compound.
- Applications involve inhalation drug delivery where a static-free mouthpiece and spacer mean more of the drug is delivered to the patient.
- In bracheotherapy applications, a static-free needle hub environment makes delivery of radioactive materials to the patient much easier.
- Vu-Stat compounds are inherently anti-static and do not depend on relative humidity to deliver static-free results.
- The material retains permanent static dissipative properties even after many washings.
