Develop more robust medical equipment with disinfectant-resistant polymers

Uncover How Disinfectant-Resistant Polymers Improve Hospital Safety and Efficiency

In this e-guide, you will discover more about the unique advantages provided by disinfectant-resistant polymers in the healthcare industry. Specifically, we take a detailed look at several case studies covering how our innovative polymers prevent degradation from harsh disinfectants in various medical equipment housing applications.

Material selection in healthcare has become incrementally important, as the increased usage of harsh chemicals and disinfectants is causing medical equipment to break down. OEMs must develop strategically advanced housing components to prevent these adverse effects, and our portfolio of high-performance specialty polymers, including Kalix® HPPA, Ixef® PARA, Udel® PSU and Radel® PPSU, provides several correlated benefits:

  • Excellent resistance against aggressive disinfectants
  • High strength and stiffness
  • Improved impact resistance
  • Low warpage
  • Colorability
