Sabic injects clear advantages into medical copolymers


Sabic is extending its healthcare polymer portfolio by launching two new polypropylene (PP) random copolymers.

Extrusion-blow moulding grade PCGR02, targeted at such applications as bottles and ampoules, is claimed to exhibit good contact transparency, outstanding impact strength and excellent processability.
The second new resin, injection moulding grade PCGR25, features “the high clarity and good antistatic properties necessary for disposable syringes,” says the company. It may also be used for other parts that benefit from its “excellent” optical properties, as well as its broad processing window.
According to Sabic, PCGR25 permits the use of lower melt processing temperatures than are normal for conventional random copolymers. Ben Raven, technical marketing engineer, commented: “Converters may operate with significantly shorter cycle times and achieve energy savings of up to 15%. Using PCGR25 also supports sustainability initiatives.”
