ISO Medical Plastics Handles

Medical Plastics
Advanced Polymers offers more ultra and high-performance polymers for use as medical plastics than any other company in the world. These materials can be sterilized using all conventional sterilization methods and, in most cases, have been tested and found to comply with ISO 10993:1 biocompatibility requirements for limited exposure applications.

Pomalux® B (acetal copolymer)
Medical grade Pomalux B is made from acetal copolymer resin which allows machined products the ability to retain dimensional integrity, maintain stability in water and most chemicals at elevated temperatures. Pomalux B products are opaque and are available in a wide array of standard colors as well as on a custom basis. Recommended sterilization techniques for Pomalux B include EtO gas and steam autoclaving. Disinfectants and germicides generally have no effect on Pomalux B, however, acidic solutions can degrade the polymer.

Radel® R5500 (polyphenylsulfone)
Medical grade Radel R5500 resin offers exceptional hydrolytic stability, toughness, and superior impact strength over a wide temperature range. This product also offers high deflection temperatures and outstanding resistance to environmental stress cracking. Recommended sterilization techniques for Radel R5500 include EtO gas, radiation, steam autoclaving, dry heat and cold sterilization.

Tempalux® (polyetherimide)
Medical grade Tempalux is made from Ultem® polyetherimide resin, an amorphous thermoplastic which exhibits excellent resistance to a wide range of chemicals and disinfectants. Ultem maintains its size and shape over a broad temperature range as well as tolerates a high amount of stress over extended periods of time. Recommended sterilization techniques for Tempalux include EtO gas, radiation, steam autoclaving, dry heat and cold sterilization.

Zelux® GS (polycarbonate - gamma stabilized)
Medical grade Zelux GS polycarbonate is produced from resin formulated to meet the stringent performance characteristics and requirements of the healthcare industry. Suitable for EtO gas and limited autoclaving sterilization, the resin also has proprietary color enhancement technology to reduce color shift caused by gamma radiation.
