Medical Plastics Offer Lower Stiffness Properties
Bayblend® M750 polycarbonate/acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (PC/ABS) meets manufacturers’ needs for a more ductile material for use in medical applications, such as medical electronics or devices. Certain drug delivery devices, in particular, would benefit from the material’s lower stiffness.
Bayblend M750 PC/ABS is supplied in pellet form for processing by injection molding. A noteworthy attribute of Bayblend M750 PC/ABS is its biocompatibility. The material meets FDA-modified ISO 10993 – Part 1, and it can be formulated by Bayer with select colorants to maintain its ISO 10993 – Part 1 compliance.
This new grade of Bayblend plastic expands Bayer’s existing family of Bayblend PC/ABS medical grades – Bayblend M850, Bayblend M850XFand Bayblend M301FR. “For decades, Bayer has provided medical OEMs with technically advanced materials that help meet the critical design, manufacturing and end-use performance parameters of their applications,” said Bruce Fine, market segment leader, Medical and Consumer Products - Polycarbonates, Bayer MaterialScience LLC. “Our introduction of this new, more ductile material continues this tradition.”
