LNP ELCRES CRX Copolymer Resins

SABIC has introduced a new family of polycarbonate (PC) copolymers that feature exceptional chemical resistance needed to enhance the durability and resilience of medical devices and equipment housings. The company's proprietary copolymer technology can help prevent premature part failure from environmental stress cracking (ESC) due to increasingly aggressive disinfectants, such as alcohols, peroxides and quaternary ammonium compounds, used to prevent hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). The new portfolio includes amorphous and semi-crystalline materials that can serve as potential drop-in solutions in existing production tooling. The presentation will focus on challenges and material solutions to help mitigate healthcare disinfectant exposure.
