New polycarbonate blend meets biocompatibility requirements

A new polycarbonate/acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (PC/ABS) blend from supplier Bayer MaterialScience (BMS; Leverkusen, Germany) is aimed squarely at processors of medical devices, with the material bringing impact resistance, stiffness, dimensional and color stability, and more to the table. Called Bayblend M850XF, the material also satisfies the biocompatibility requirements of ISO 10933 Part 1 as modified by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
