Evonik Cyro has introduced the CYROLITE Protect 2, an acrylic-based multipolymer compound developed for medical devices with antimicrobial agents. CYROLITE Protect 2 offers lipid and alcohol resistance in addition to the antimicrobial benefits of the original CYROLITE Protect. All CYROLITE Protect products are specifically designed for FDA regulated Class I or Class II medical devices covered by 510(k) PMN submission.

“Lipid and alcohol contact can cause devices made from other plastics to fail and CYROLITE Protect 2 has been designed to address this challenge,” said Peter Allread, General Manager of Performance Polymers/Molding Compounds at Evonik. “The product’s new properties are important because the innovative multipolymer compound allows healthcare workers to use lipid IV solutions or swab devices with alcohol without fear of Environmental Stress Cracking (ESC).”
