Disinfectant-Resistant Polymers for Medical Equipment Housings
Solvay's specialty polymers for medical equipment housings
The increased use of aggressive cleaners and disinfectants to prevent hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) has created an industry-wide problem of cracking in medical equipment housings. Proper material selection can prevent housing failures. When you evaluate chemical resistance for daily use in medical equipment housings, you must consider multiple factors, including the material's chemical compatibility under stress.
In this webinar, you’ll learn about: Why medical equipment housings are cracking • How proper material selection can prevent cracking and crazing • Polymer properties most critical to better performance • Case studies of commercial applications
