Ineos Styrolution (Frankfurt, Germany) has announced the introduction of two new styrenic grades at Pharmapack 2017, which began its two-day run in Paris today. Both grades are designed for specific uses by medical device manufacturers.
Novodur HD M203FC G3 is a glass-fiber-filled, medical-grade polymer that is certified to the relevant parts of biocompatibility standard ISO 10993. Stiffness has been increased in the high-flow grade, making it the material of choice for demanding applications such as medical spikes and other products requiring structural stability.
Compliance with parts of ISO 10993 reduces risk for device manufacturers and helps accelerate time to market. Novodur HD M203FC G3 will be offered with Ineos Styrolution’s Full Service HD package, which includes the regulatory documents noted above along with an up to 36-month notification of change (NOC) and a signed long-term supply contract.
Styrolux 4G60 has been specifically designed for the development of drip chambers in IV sets. Material properties include softness, elasticity, transparency and bondability. Styrolux 4G60 is available with the Essential HD Package with a signed long-term supply contract. The package includes an up to 12-month NOC.
“We have developed these new solutions in close cooperation with our customers,” explained Alexander Silvestre, Global Director – Healthcare. “To my knowledge, the new Novodur HD M203FC G3 grade is the first glass-fiber-filled polymer grade to be offered with the full complement of healthcare compliance documents. We are providing medical device designers the option to choose a superior product that meets both the technical and regulatory demands that are indicative of the healthcare industry.”
