Specialty Polymers for Medical Equipment

Solvay, a leading global supplier of specialty polymers, has published a new brochure designed to help medical equipment-makers optimize their understanding and application of the industry’s broadest selection of advanced thermoplastics. Titled “High-Performance Polymers for Medical Equipment,” the brochure details Solvay’s wide range of specialty polymers targeting applications in healthcare.

“Performance requirements for connectors, handles, sensor housings, microtubing, and monitor frames and cases vary widely,” said Jeff Hrivnak, global business manager for Healthcare at Solvay’s Specialty Polymers Business Unit. “But many share a common need for the unique combinations of performance characteristics available only from Solvay’s specialty polymers. This new brochure will help designers find the material that precisely fits their needs.”
