  • Broad styrenic solutions portfolio for the healthcare industry

INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, presents new innovative styrenic solutions for the healthcare industry at MD&M West 2018 in Anaheim, California (booth 611 at Anaheim Convention Center; February 6-8, 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 are shown at MD&M West 2018. This selection covers a wide range of healthcare segments including IV systems and fluid 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.

- Regulatory compliant glass filled ABS Novodur® HD M203FC G3.
This first ISO 10993 certified glass fiber filled ABS excels with its dimensional stability and rigidity properties. The material was specifically designed for applications like medical spikes.

- SBC material K-Resin® KR01.
This material, that became part of the INEOS Styrolution solutions portfolio with the acquisition of the K-Resin SBC business in 2017, was designed for applications such as suction handles.

- Styrolux® SBC.
The Styrolux SBC material convinces with extrusion properties, impact strength and dimensional stability. The Quanti-Tray® lab test tray is a typical application for this material.

“Our close cooperation with leading healthcare application providers has resulted in the strongest solutions line-up we have ever provided to the medical market,” comments Alexander Silvestre, Global Director – Healthcare. “We invite healthcare solutions providers to join us at our booth in Anaheim and benefit from our latest materials and all the experience that has gone into their development.”
