Chest Drainage Units

Application Areas

Medical Devices


Chest Drainage Units are large devices usually containing several large flat surfaces combined with many intricate pathways. They can be molding nightmares. Fortunately CYROLITE® compounds' easy and reliable molding characteristics lend themselves to the molding of these difficult parts. Also the product's welding properties allow for the easy mating of parts without the worry of leaks. The product's resistance to PVC plasticizers means that PVC tubing can be used without problems. Since CYROLITE® compound is clear and tough, its use in chest drainage products helps Heathcare Workers monitor the fluids flowing in the unit, and it helps the devices take the abuse that these large units can be subjected to.
