福彩3d三天计划两胆码 Develops New Silicone-Alternative TPE for Medical Tubing
February 3, 2020
ANAHEIM, Calif. – February 3, 2020 – At Medical Design and Manufacturing (MD&M) West next week, 福彩3d三天计划两胆码 will launch its newest medical grade, Versaflex™ HC BT218, formulated in response to supply challenges stemming from silicone shortages and sterilization facility closures.
福彩3d三天计划两胆码Throughout 2019, the FDA issued multiple alerts regarding medical tubing and potential medical device shortages due to reduced supplies of siloxane, a key ingredient in silicone, and the closure of multiple ethylene oxide (EtO) sterilization facilities. These constraints are fostering higher prices, longer lead times, and increased interest in silicone alternatives such as thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) tubing solutions.
In response, 福彩3d三天计划两胆码 formulated Versaflex™ HC BT218 TPE for biopharmaceutical tubing applications. Delivering on critical application demands, the new grade offers weldability, kink resistance, and tensile strength performance comparable to leading medical tubing materials, including silicone and TPEs. Commercially available in the United States, it has been submitted for USP VI and ISO 10993-4,5 certifications.
“We’re excited to add the new Versaflex grade to our expanding set of solutions that enable customers to continue pursuing product innovation and meet market demands,” said Jim Mattey, global marketing director, Specialty Engineered Materials at 福彩3d三天计划两胆码. “We are committed to leveraging our material science expertise to formulate alternative and customized solutions that meet regulatory demands and functional necessity for life-saving medical devices, especially in the face of market uncertainties.”
福彩3d三天计划两胆码Versaflex HC BT218 adds to 福彩3d三天计划两胆码’s broader portfolio of specialty engineered polymers for healthcare that meet stringent regulatory demands and are suitable for alternative sterilization methods, including gamma and autoclave.
