Even more performance and durability for healthcare applications with Romiloy®

(PresseBox) ( Pinneberg, )
The demand for cleaning medical equipment with ever more aggressive disinfectants is growing. If selection of the cleaning materials are not right and optimal, the containing chemicals can induce problems such as stress cracking (ESC, environmental stress cracking), which can affect the strength of the end product.

ROMILOY® 5130/01 and 5140 are highly impact-resistant blends of polyester and polycarbonate (PC), which consistently and reliably meet the high demands of the healthcare industry for patient safety and apparatus durability. These blends combine the exceptional chemical resistance of polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) to resist more harsh disinfectants with the impact resistance and dimensional stability of PC to protect the portable equipment from shock and impact during transportation.

The wide processing window of these materials enables product designers to achieve greater design freedom, as they can produce large, high-quality and ergonomic molded parts without difficulty.

Resistance to common disinfectants and chemicals used by Electrics and Electronics has been evaluated according to test procedures in the ASTM D543 / ISO 175:2010 guidelines. The materials are also listed in white, natural and black as V0 up to a wall thickness of 0.75 mm and 5VA up to a wall thickness of 2.5 mm UL94. The Comparative Tracking Index (CTI) of 600 allows the materials to be used for current-carrying power components in very harsh environments.

The flame-retardant blends offer an economical alternative to conventionally coated materials. With the support of the Color Competence Center (CCC+), ROMIRA provides OEMs with products in a wide range of color spectrums they require, while reducing costs and the environmental effects of secondary coating. The inherent color prevents the problem of scratches in the lacquer and makes it easier to clean the parts.
