“Let’s Play” was the theme of the Covestro booth this year – demonstrating how we collaborate with the industry to drive innovation for customers. As a supporter of the advancement of healthcare, our medical materials were among the sights to see at the booth – including our new Makrolon® Rx3440 polycarbonate.
This new medical-grade material is designed for use in luers and other IV connectors – allowing healthcare professionals to safely deliver oncology drugs to patients. The use of Makrolon® Rx3440 polycarbonate in oncology drug devices was also the focus of a Tech Talk led by Pierre Moulinie, global technology manager and Arthur Wang, technical development manager for Polycarbonates. The Tech Talk highlighted a Covestro-designed testing apparatus that was instrumental in the development of the polycarbonate and can be used to test the chemical resistance of customers’ luer connectors.
