- Transparent ABS Resin
- Polymer Optical Fiber
- Micro Fiber Material
Transparent ABS Resin 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
- Sterilizable Superior Scratch Resistance, Structural Strength and Stiffness
- Robust Chemical Resistance for lipids, alcohol and cleaning agents
- Excellent High and Low Temperature Performance
- Easy to Machine, Glue and Print. Excellent Solvent Adhesive Properties

Polymer Optical Fiber 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.

Micro Fiber Material For Clinical Engineer
Toraysee™ for Clinical Engineer (CE) is a patented wiping cloth which cleanly wipes away dirt that ordinary fibers/wiping cloths cannot. Toraysee™ CE is designed with ultra-fine, 2 micron fibers which function as "micro pockets" and are up to ten times denser than ordinary wiping cloths. These microfibers trap and hold the contaminants and prevents reapplying them back onto the cleaned surface.
Toraysee™ CE wiping cloths remove all types of dirt, including oil films, organic matter and contaminants. Toraysee™ wipes clean more thoroughly than other wiping cloths and are ideal for cleaning and removing contaminants from these applications:
- Medical equipment
- Instrument maintenance
- Medical apparatus
- Medical workstations
- Eye examination equipment
Micro Fiber Material For Endoscope
Toraysee™ For Endoscope (ES) is a patented, sterilized wiping cloth only for use with medical optical lenses. Ultra-fine, 2 micron fibers made by Toray's technology firmly adhere and trap dirt on lens. "Micro pockets" sequentially take in dirt to ensure excellent wiping performance.
Benefits of Toraysee™ include:
- Simplifying the process of lens cleaning
- Reduce staff cleaning time
- Expedite the scope back to operative field
- Contributes to securing visibility
- Reducing manipulation time
- Can be used in conjunction with anti-fog solution
- Radiopaque indicator ring included
