MOSCOW (MRC) -- Avient, formerly PolyOne, announces that it will launch new biocompatible colorants at the upcoming Medical Device & Manufacturing West exhibition in Anaheim, California, according to SpecialChem.
Colorant Chromatics Transcend Premier Healthcare Colorants are formulated to offer ultra-high heat resistance and performance specifically for medical applications and are available in a range of vivid colors.
Clean, vibrant colors in both transparent and opaque options help set this line of high-temperature and high-performance colorants apart from other options. Additional iterations are in development for other high-performance resins, including polyethersulfone (PES) and polysulfone (PSU).
Transcend Premier Healthcare Colorants are being launched in polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) resin, which can withstand up to 1,000 autoclave cycles and high heat sterilization to 150C.
These resins also maintain dimensional stability while providing chemical resistance against the effects of harsh cleaning agents.
“This range of biocompatble and regulatory-compliant formulations answers a demand for cleaner, brighter colors in the healthcare space,” said Michael Garratt, president, color, additives & inks, EMEA.
Transcend Premier Healthcare Colorants are available globally. They are tested to ISO 10993 standards and can be customized with the addition of functional additives to enhance product performance. Low minimum order quantities offer specialty healthcare customers greater processing flexibility and inventory efficiencies.
As MRC informed before, last summer, Avient expanded its sustainable solutions portfolio with the acquisition of Magna Colours. Founded in 1978 and based in Barnsley, U.K., Magna is a developer of next-gen water-based ink technology that provides innovative and high-performance solutions.
We remind that in January 2021, Avient Corporation announced the official opening of its new CycleWorks facility in Pogliano, Italy. The new lab and plant will conduct chemistry testing and evaluations to help customers meet the challenge of plastics recycling and advance the goal of a circular economy. The demonstration plant mimics real-world recycling conditions in a research environment, said Avient.
On 1 July 2020, PolyOne and Clariant Masterbatches joined together as Avient, a company focused on specialised and sustainable material solutions with projected 2020 pro forma revenues of approximately USD 3.7 billion. Avient has approximately 9,100 employees and is certified ACC Responsible Care and a founding member of the AEPW.
