Tough - 5 times the impact resistance of unmodified acrylics
Transparent - offers high light transmission with little haze
Chemical Resistant - resistant to body fluids and many chemicals, especially plasticizers
Sterilizable - can be sterilized by EtO gas by radiation techniques as well as by the STERRAD® Sterilization System.
Bondability/Weldability - offers excellent and consistent bonding to PVC tubing. CYROLITE® parts can also be solvent bonded, thermal bonded as well as ultrasonic or spin-welded.
Alcohol and Lipid Resistance - Out-performs lipid resistance polycarbonate in percent elongation retention after exposure to either alcohol or lipids. It has become the Medical Industry Standard for an alcohol resistant acrylic polymer.
Improved HAEMO Compatibilty - CYROLITE® Med 2 offers improved HAEMO compatibility Vs. other competitive polymers.
