CYROLITE® acrylic-based multipolymer compounds
The world's most advanced medical acrylics.
CYROLITE® acrylic-based multipolymer compounds, the world’s most advanced medical acrylics, provide a superior balance of properties that empower designers to create better-than-ever medical devices. CYROLITE® compounds are MMA/styrene/ethyl acrylate terpolymers with an added impact modifier. These compounds vary according to molecular weight and rubber loading.
Benefits of CYROLITE®
Gamma, e-beam and EtO sterilizable
Easy to process
Alcohols and lipid resistant
