Trinseo to Feature Biocompatibility-Tested Resin Portfolio at COMPAMED 2015
November 16, 2015
Trinseo, the global materials company and manufacturer of plastics, latex and rubber, will feature its biocompatibility-tested resins at COMPAMED 2015 in Dusseldorf, Germany at Hall 8B, Stand 8B L39 from November 16 -19.
In particular, the company will highlight two resins from the MAGNUM™ ABS Resins and EMERGE™ Advanced Resins brands, including:
- MAGNUM™ 8391 MED ABS Resins: medical grade resins produced with mass polymerization technology for superior lot-to-lot consistency and an exceptional white base color. This material has been fully biocompatibility tested according to ISO 10993 standards.
- EMERGE™ 9500 CR Advanced Resins (EMERGE™ 9000 CR Series): polycarbonate compounds with advanced chemical resistant technology that withstand aggressive cleaners and disinfectants common in a healthcare environment. These materials have been biocompatibility tested according to ISO 10993 Part 5 and Part 10 standards.
During the show, the company also plans to announce its production and fulfillment model for its medical business in Europe and Asia Pacific that has been successful for nearly three decades in North America. With the new model, Trinseo offers custom compounding in its three primary regions with polycarbonate base resins coming from Trinseo’s highest quality, medically-equivalent resins produced in its clean room facility in Germany and by its joint venture partner in Japan.
“Our strategic medical customers need a supply partner that offers global products, regional regulatory support, and the assurance of long-term supply,” said Dr. Martin Lindway, global medical business manager. “Materials today not only need to meet performance and quality specifications but they must also be conveniently and consistently available locally, with the promise that a resin material will be the same from one region to the next. By leveraging its assets, Trinseo is able to offer this benefit as well as an exceptional customer experience in each region.”
Trinseo’s premier manufacturing and compounding resources are part of its new global production and fulfillment strategy. These resources adhere to common quality management systems and the same global notification of change policy for optimal consistency and reliability in the resins.
