Wed, 08/05/2009 - 10:43am
The Makrolon Rx2435 polycarbonate resin is a medical grade that addresses the increasing demand for a radiation sterilizable material for thin-wall medical applications. Like Makrolon Rx2530 polycarbonate, the Rx2435 exhibits a balance of mechanical strength and toughness. It offers ease of flow, incorporated specifically to meet the needs of thin-wall applications. The grade meets the requirements of FDA-Modified ISO 10993, Part 1 "Biological Evaluation of Medical Devices" tests. Potential thin-wall applications include dialysis components, catheter connectors, surgical instruments (trocars, retractors, and handles), and drug delivery devices.
