INEOS Styrolution announces two new innovative styrenics grades for the healthcare industry at Pharmapack 2017

Frankfurt, Germany

  • Novodur® HD M203FC G3: ISO 10993 certified glass fiber filled ABS
  • Styrolux® 4G60: specific drip chamber SBC grade
  • INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, announces two new innovative styrenics grades at Pharmapack 2017 in Paris. Both grades are designed for very specific use by medical device manufacturers.

    Novodur® HD M203FC G3 is a glass fiber filled medical polymer grade which is certified against the relevant parts of the biocompatibility standard ISO 10993. The new grade delivers a significantly increased stiffness in combination with a high flowability making it the material of choice for demanding applications like medical spikes and applications requiring structural stability.

    The regulatory compliancy reduces the risk for device manufacturers to pass the demanding and time consuming regulatory approvals in the healthcare industry.  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 months notification of change (NOC) with a signed long-term supply contract.

    Styrolux® 4G60 has been specifically designed for the development of drip chambers in IV sets. This new grade represents the first solution of the fourth generation of advanced copolymer materials. Styrolux® 4G60 excels in softness, elasticity and transparency. Very good bonding properties make this new grade an excellent fit for the production of drip chamber containers.

    Styrolux® 4G60 is available with the “Essential HD Package” with a signed long-term supply contract. The package includes an up to 12 months NOC.
