Compamed
At Compamed/Medica 2017, Covestro will showcase its expertise and polycarbonate medical materials.

At Compamed/Medica, Covestro will showcase leadership in the medical industry with polycarbonate materials that meet a wide range of requirements. With balanced properties such as exceptional transparency and impact resistance, Makrolon® polycarbonate is a safe and durable material for medical housing components. Other benefits include good hydrolysis resistance, easy release and biocompatibility according to many ISO 10993-1 requirements. Makrolon® can be used in a variety of medical technology applications, including dialyzers, injection systems, IV access components and oxygenators.

Covestro will also highlight Apec® high heat polycarbonate resin. This transparent and strong polycarbonate offers easy release, high softening temperature, good hydrolysis resistance and biocompatibility according to many ISO 10993-1 test requirements. Apec® is suitable for medical applications that call for autoclave sterilization, such as baby incubators, dental or surgical instruments, sterilization boxes and endoscope disinfectant systems.

We hope to see you in Düsseldorf, and are looking forward to discussing future projects and material challenges!
