Covestro developed medical grades of its Makrolon® polycarbonate tailored to meet the specific needs of medical applications.
Makrolon® polycarbonate is dimensionally stable, retaining its shape even when exposed to heat and humidity.
Makrolon® polycarbonate is durable and has high strength, yet is easily released from the mold after processing.
This application utilizes a transparent medical grade of Makrolon® polycarbonate which allows for visualization of syringe markings, labels and contents.
The medical grade of Makrolon® polycarbonate used has a low viscosity, meaning that the substance is thin and flows easily when melted.
