Laser welding of medical devices
Clariant Healthcare Polymer Solutions announces availability of new medical-grade polymer compounds and concentrates for laser-welding supported by formulation expertise that can help medical-device manufacturers take a ‘Quality by Design’ (QbD) approach to laser-welding of plastic components.
Medical polymer compounds
Working with a leading medical device manufacturer, Clariant Plastics & Coatings Healthcare Polymer Solutions has completed development and testing of new polymer materials specially formulated to resist degradation caused by exposure to high humidity and temperature. The new technology is especially important in resins that incorporate high loadings of radiopaque metals because these fillers are known to exacerbate the degradation effect.
New metallic aesthetic
Clariant Masterbatches has developed a novel chrome color that opens new opportunities for designers and manufacturers of high-end products, bottles and packaging.
