CYRO INDUSTRIES' NEW ACRYLIC POLYMERS REFERENCE GUIDE
FOR THE MEDICAL INDUSTRY

 

 

Rockaway, NJ – February 3, 2005 - Medical device manufacturers and design engineers can enhance product quality with comprehensive product information on CYRO Industries’ medical grade compounds and alloys. This new resource features detailed charts and graphs illustrating the lipid and isopropyl alcohol resistance, heat aging, and sterilization of CYRO’s advanced acrylic polymers. This reference tool details CYRO’s complete line of CYROLITEÒ acrylic-based multipolymer compounds, XTÒ polymer acrylic-based multipolymer compounds, CYREXÒ 200-8005 acrylic-polycarbonate alloys, and Vu-Stat™ static dissipative acrylic multipolymer compounds. CYROLITE and XT polymer compounds and CYREX alloys are ideal for spikes, lures, fittings, rigid medical packaging trays, valve assembles, filter housings, IV adapters, flow controls, as well as many other medical applications.

The guide highlights three newer products: CYROLITEÒ Med 2 acrylic-based multipolymer compound, the most lipid and alcohol resistant acrylic compound for injection molded disposable medical devices, Vu-Stat static dissipative acrylic multipolymer compound, a transparent polymer providing permanent ESD protection for applications sensitive to static discharge, and XT 375TE, impact modified acrylic-based multipolymer compound for packaging applications, that is compatible with most sterilization techniques and exhibits evidence of tampering and seal integrity.

CYROLITE compounds offer superior lipid and alcohol resistance, as well as compatibility with GAMMA, E-Beam, and ethylene oxide gas (EtO) sterilization techniques. These compounds are ideal for thin-walled and difficult-to-mold multi-cavity parts.

XT polymer compounds are transparent, tough, bondable, and offer a desirable combination of melt strength, heat resistance, and sterilization methods, sought after in the medical packaging industry. These polymers can be safely sterilized by EtO and GAMMA radiation methods while retaining package integrity.

CYREX 200-8005 alloy offers a unique combination of properties ideal for opaque medical device applications requiring durability and chemical resistance. This alloy is GAMMA, E-Beam, and EtO sterilizable and offers excellent impact strength.

Headquartered in Rockaway, NJ, CYRO Industries is the innovative supplier of specialty acrylic solutions to existing and emerging markets in the Americas. Formed in 1976 as a joint partnership between Cytec Industries and Röhm GmbH & Co., KG, a subsidiary of Degussa AG, CYRO has broad technological and global resources to respond to market demands.
