INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, will exhibit at MEDTEC China 2019 in Shanghai, booth A110 at Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center from September 25-27, 2019.

INEOS Styrolution continues to show its support to the healthcare sector with ongoing research to develop new materials specifically designed for use in medical and laboratory environments. A selection of most recent applications highlighting new materials will be shown at MEDTEC 2019. This selection covers a wide range of healthcare segments including IV systems and fluid delivery, labware, surgical instruments, as well as respiratory and drug delivery devices. 

The key focus at the INEOS Styrolution’s booth includes:

  • New S-TPE (styrene thermoplastic elastomer) based medical tubing grade Styroflex® 4G80¹.
    Key material properties include excellent bonding performance, good kink resistance and clarity, and the ability to be processed on standard tubing extrusion equipment at superior processing rates when compared to other materials. This material comes with INEOS Styrolution’s Essential HD Package (risk class 1 & 2).
  • SBC based medical drip chamber material Styrolux® 4G60.
    The material offers excellent transparency and bonding properties. The very good flow properties enable easy processing, making it an excellent fit for the production of drip chambers.
  • SBC based urine meter material K-Resin® KR01.
    This K-Resin grade offers excellent transparent and water clarity and very good balance on toughness and stiffness, making it ideal for applications such as urine meters and suction handles.

INEOS Styrolution offers the most diverse styrenic portfolio and healthcare service packages. It delivers well beyond industry benchmarks. Three packages are available from INEOS Styrolution:
