INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, will present new innovative styrenic solutions for the healthcare industry at MEDTEC China 2018 in Shanghai, booth C309 at Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center from September 26-28, 2018.

INEOS Styrolution shows continued commitment to the healthcare industry by further increasing the already broad portfolio of styrenic solutions specifically designed for use in medical and laboratory environments. A selection of most recent applications highlighting new materials will be shown at MEDTEC 2018. This selection covers a wide range of healthcare segments including IV systems and fluid management, respiratory and drug delivery, surgical equipment and labware.  

The focus at the INEOS Styrolution booth is on the following solutions:

  • New SBC based medical drip chamber material Styrolux® 4G60.
    The new material offers excellent transparency and bonding properties. The very good flowability properties enable easy processability.
  • ABS material Novodur® HD M203FC 
    Owing to its unique combination of high surface quality, dimensional stability, heat resistance and robustness, this material is the number one choice for dry powder inhaler (DPI) marketed by leading global pharmaceutical companies.
  • SBC materials K-Resin® KR01 and KR05.
    These K-Resin grades, that became part of the INEOS Styrolution solutions portfolio with the acquisition of the K-Resin SBC business in 2017, are well suited for various medical applications, including suction yankauers, medical drip chamber, face mask and IV parts.
  • MBS materials Zylar® 650 and 960.
    These grades offer practical toughness, excellent clarity, chemical resistance and superior processing properties, making them an ideal choice for transparent applications including IV connectors, device housings and mouth pieces.
