LTL Compounders adds SBC and TPU to ColorRx line of medical resins

Having recently passed the 20th anniversary of its founding, LTL Color Compounders (Morrisville, PA) celebrated a bit more by adding styrene block copolymer (SBC) and thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) elastomers to its ColorRx line of custom colored medical grade resins. The line now encompasses a broad range of engineering and commodity resins.

The original lineup of ColorRx materials includes: polycarbonate (PC), polycarbonate/acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (PC/ABS), acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS), polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE) and nylon (PA). More recent additions to the line include: high-impact polystyrene (HIPS), polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), polycarbonate/polyethylene terephthalate (PC/PET), polyacetal (POM), polyetherimide (PEI), polyphenylene ether (PPE), polysulfone (PSU), and polyphenylene sulfone (PPSU).

LTL says that, among the applications now in production or in development using ColroRx resins, are included endoscope components, blood collection and separation components, antimicrobial drain tubing, and surgical and dental instrument handles. LTL is certified to ISO 9001:2008 and says it is the first compounder to be certified to ISO 13485:2003, which was done in April 2009.
