R40MLT-MG

Technical Data Sheet
Product Description

NATPET polypropylene grades for healthcare applications are produced under controlled conditions to ensure consistent quality and contamination free resins.

R40MLT-MG is highly transparent random copolymer resin containing anti-static agent. Produced using Spheripol® technology, this grade is a reactor grade (non-visbroken) with an exceptional advantage of having morphologically uniform resins, and intrinsically organoleptic-neutral (odorless) character. The ultra clear nucleation additive package also ensure excellent dimensional stability and potential for energy and cycle time savings. The high flow ability renders the grade suitable for thin walled injection molding application.

It is recommended that all potential activities for applications of this grade in the healthcare area have to be discussed with the relevant technical and business representative of NATPET particularly for use in an implantable device that is introduced into the human body by surgical intervention and is intended to remain in place following surgical procedure.
