Trilliant HC blends are well-suited for hand-held medical-device applications, such as diagnostic tools, blood-glucose meters, pulse oximeters, and battery-powered feeding pumps, in which close contact with the skin and cleaning with chemicals is common. The blends provide resistance to chemicals used in disinfectants and cleansers without cracking or crazing, and offer added toughness to medical parts, particularly hand-held medical devices that are utilized frequently and could be dropped. The material performs similarly to polycarbonate during processing, requiring minimal retooling.
