TOYOLAC® Transparent ABS Medical Resin Finds Success With HEM’s And Ventilator Components – Providing Enhanced Operating Performance In Covid-19 Treatment Devices

Toyolac®’s lower molding temperatures and lower pressure requirements compared to other resin materials is proving to help increase production capacity and turnaround time for Covid-19 related medical components. With operating cylinder temperatures ranging from 210°C to 260°C, Toyolac® provides smoother resin flow, increased cycle times with decreased part flash. This enhanced flowability provides increased part cavitation while providing better molding of thin-walled part features with less tooling wear and longer mold life.

New York, NY:  Toyolac®’s lower molding temperatures and lower pressure requirements compared to other resin materials is proving to help increase production capacity and turnaround time for Covid-19 related medical components. With operating cylinder temperatures ranging from 210°C to 260°C, Toyolac® provides smoother resin flow, increased cycle times with decreased part flash. This enhanced flowability provides increased part cavitation while providing better molding of thin-walled part features with less tooling wear and longer mold life.

Case-in-point: Heat and Moisture Exchangers components molded with Toyolac® resin meet multiple component assembly requirements, are easily bonded together with adhesives, providing a secure, long-lasting product. With robust resistance to lipids, alcohol and cleaning agents, Toyolac® produced HMEs provide ideal molded part designs. Toyolac® material structural also creates strength and stiffness across the molded components and is scratch resistant. The molded surface is also printable for tracking and identification purposes as well as brand identification.
