Solvay’s Radel® PPSU selected for large-format surgical instrument tray

Solvay's Radel® PPSU resin helped Legacy Medical Solutions optimize a large-format sterilization tray for surgical instruments. Radel® polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) resin’s strength-to-weight ratio and ability to withstand high pH cleaners during repeated sterilization cycles and high-temperature autoclaves were key factors in Legacy Medical Solutions’ decision to utilize the material to improve the design, manufacture and use of the tray. Solvay is featuring these innovative trays at its booth (#2414) at MD&M West 2019 in Anaheim, Calif. View more and related images
