New palette of colors gives engineers more attractive design options

Solvay Advanced Polymers Llc : 13 September, 2006  (New Product)
Solvay Advanced Polymers, L.L.C. today announced the introduction of a new line of transparent colors of RADEL R polyphenylsulfone, a highperformance plastic known for its uncompromising toughness in re-usable medical devices where it must withstand highly aggressive cleaners and disinfectants as well as repeated high-temperature, pressurized-steam sterilization.
Solvay Advanced Polymers, L.L.C. today announced the introduction of a new line of transparent colors of RADEL R polyphenylsulfone, a highperformance plastic known for its uncompromising toughness in re-usable medical devices where it must withstand highly aggressive cleaners and disinfectants as well as repeated high-temperature, pressurized-steam sterilization.

The inherent transparency of RADEL R polyphenylsulfone has always provided
a distinct advantage over metals and reinforced polymers used in high-performance applications, but until now was available only in an amber color. The new grade, designated RADEL R-5800 TR, is offered in a range of bright colors. This allows more flexibility in designs requiring transparency and provides more opportunities to differentiate products in the marketplace. The initial color offering includes blue, violet, red, fuchsia, orange, yellow and black. Custom colors are also available.

RADEL R-5800 TR delivers the same high level of performance as the original
amber colored material. With a heat deflection temperature of 405F (207C), it can withstand continuous exposure to heat and still absorb tremendous impact without cracking or breaking. It has excellent hydrolytic stability, is inherently flame retardant, and offers exceptional resistance to bases and other chemicals.

Solvay Advanced Polymers Introduces Transparent Colors Typical applications for RADEL R-5800 TR include medical cases, trays, and lids, as well as sight glasses, face shields, appliance components, and high-temperature lighting components.
