Albis Plastic has expanded its healthcare product portfolio by adding Texin RxT TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer) types from Covestro.
It has tensile strength, abrasion resistance, elasticity and shock-absorbing properties.
Texin RxT is suitable for many fields of applications in medical technology, laboratory and diagnostics – such as the production of tubes, catheters, housing parts, soft-touch handles, as well as many other applications – because of its tensile strength, abrasion resistance, elasticity and shock-absorbing properties.
It also has good resistance to hydrolysis and microbes, chemical resistance and transparency. Texin RxT is available in several hardness levels (Shore A70 – D65) and, unlike some conventional rubber or PVC products, does not contain any softeners, which can cause problems such as incompatibilities.
The material possesses the same mechanical properties as the well-known Desmopan products from Covestro.
It also comes with an extensive regulatory service package – including assurance of a consistent formula as well as confirmations of food compatibility as per FDA and biocompatibility e.g. USP Class VI or ISO10993-1.
