Latex- And Plasticiser-Free Alternatives For Medical Tubing
01 August 2001
Three new thermoplastic elastomer compounds have been introduced by
Teknor Apex that will allow manufacturers of medical tubing to replace
latex or avoid plasticisers in their products. Grades MP 1580L1 and MP
1871-R, with Shore A hardness ratings of 37 and 35 respectively, are
formulated to replace latex, while grade MP 1848, (Shore A hardness of
75) is designed to replace flexible PVC in tubing and moulded components
with comparable clarity and kink-resistance.
