You can look to Toray to deliver advanced materials to you for improved manufacturing and better and more cost-competitive medical products. With our advanced medical materials, your devices and products are destined to succeed. The world is full of possibilities and materials can change our lives.
Toray was the ﬁrst, and is the world's largest manufacturer of transparent ABS. Toray's proprietary Toyolac® compound is a unique, transparent ABS with superior injection molding and machining qualities made speciﬁcally for the medical market.
Toyolac® is a popular thermoplastic due to its low cost, superior hardness, toughness and resistance properties. These properties have found application in thousands of products worldwide.
Toyolac® is a FDA Drug Master File registered material that is USP Class 6 tested and meets ISO 10993 for biocompatibility. Speciﬁc tests include -4 for blood interactions, -5 for in vitro cytoxicity, -10 for irritation & skin sensitization and -11 for systemic cytotoxicity.
Toyolac® has been found to be a very cost effective replacement for many medical applications requiring clear plastic. Applications include housings, infusion sets, dialyzer cartridges and other drug and blood contact devices where a low cost high strength replacement for clear polycarbonate is desired.
- Biocompatible, Bisphenol-A Free

Endoscopy, ureteroscopy, ophthalmic surgery and other procedures require devices that are smaller and can navigate more difﬁcult paths than ever before. Toray has met the increasingly demanding needs for high quality imaging in the minimally invasive surgical market with the Raytela® ﬁber optic cable.
Toray's Raytela® is a very ﬂexible and highly efﬁcient transmitter of high intensity light. Its greater light efﬁciency transmission means that it requires less intensity at the light source. An additional special characteristic is the wider degree of light broadcasting at the distal end. This combination of special capabilities results in signiﬁcantly smaller diameter devices that require fewer light cables.
New devices are being developed to diagnose new disease indications. Many of these devices are required to negotiate signiﬁcantly more tortuous paths than previously capable. In addition to the smaller diameter, the Raytela® optical ﬁber can negotiate tight 9mm radius bends and bend back upon itself 180° with no diminution in light intensity.
Available in 4 diameters from 250 µm to 1000 µm, Raytela® is the new standard in optical ﬁbers for medical device illumination.
