Altron™ LSG PC are produced from selected batches of a specific non-UV-stabilized polycarbonate resin. This polymer shows a combination of good mechanical, thermal and electrical properties combined with a good chemical resistance. The composition of the resin used for the production of the LSG PC stock shapes complies with the regulations that apply in the Member States of the European Union (Directive 2002/72/EC, as amended) and in the United States of America (FDA) for plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with foodstuffs.
Altron™ LSG PC stock shapes have also been successfully type tested for their compliance with both United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and ISO 10993-1 guideline requirements for Biocompatibility Testing of Materials, and they come with full traceability from resin to stock shape. These features, added to a good sterilizability by means of ethylene oxide, plasma and gamma irradiation, make Altron™ LSG PC stock shapes suitable for applications in the medical, pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets.
