INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, will present new innovative styrenic solutions for the healthcare industry at IMDI 2018 in Ahmedabad, booth 6 at J.B. Auditorium, Ahmedabad Management Association from October 26-27, 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 IMDI 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 G3
    This is a glass fiber filled ABS material suited for medical applications which is certified against the relevant parts of the biocompatibility standard ISO 10993 and USP Class VI. The new grade delivers a significantly increased stiffness in combination with a high flowability making it the material of choice for demanding applications like medical spikes and applications requiring structural stability.
  • ABS material Novodur® HD M203FC 
    Owing to its unique combination of high surface quality, dimensional stability, chemical resistance and robustness, this material is the number one choice for dry powder inhaler (DPI) marketed by leading global pharmaceutical companies, as well as the insulin pen.
  • 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.

“This is the first time INEOS Styrolution is participating in this event with a booth. We are looking forward to welcoming medical manufacturers and designers at our booth at IMDI and to discuss collaborations and help them differentiate themselves from their competition with our innovative solutions and regulatory compliant materials,” says Partha Mohapatra, India Healthcare Lead, INEOS Styrolution.
