Sultron™ LSG PPSU stock shapes are produced from selected batches of a specific Radel R polyphenylsulfone resin. This material offers a better impact strength and chemical resistance than Duratron® LSG PEI and Sultron™ LSG PSU and it also has superior hydrolysis resistance as measured by steam autoclaving cycles to failure. The composition of the resin used for the production of the Sultron™ LSG PPSU 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.
Sultron™ LSG PPSU 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 an excellent sterilizability by means of steam, dry heat, ethylene oxide, plasma and gamma irradiation, make Sultron™ LSG PPSU stock shapes very suitable for applications in the medical, pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets.
