Application Areas
CYROLITE® acrylic based molding compounds have been used in blood filter housings, in blood plasma separators and in blood platelet separators for many years.

All Grades of CYROLITE®* offer these benefits to make your Blood Handling Devices better:

  • Ease of processing for multi-cavity tools or into complex geometries.
  • Chemically resistant to bodily fluids
  • Readily bonds or welds to most polymers
  • Resistant to PVC plastizers
  • Resistant to body fluids and lipids
  • Resistant to many disinfectants
  • Impact and scratch resistant
  • Clarity for fluid viewing
  • Can be sterilized by EtO gas or by radiation techniques
