Colorful Medical-Grade Polymer

June 7, 2006
Radel R polyphenylsulfone (PES) quickly colors in smaller batches for orthopedic components needing short production runs.

Custom opaque and translucent PES grades, along with a full range of stock colors, withstand thousands of disinfection cycles and steam sterilizations without significant loss in physical or mechanical properties. Radel R-5800 TR, for example, is a bright translucent grade for lids and latches on sterilization instrument cases and containers.
