Celanese Introduces Medical Grades of Tribological Polymer

Celanese Corporation announced the introduction of Hostaform(R) MT(R) SlideX(TM) POM, a family of tribologically modified, medically compliant engineered materials. These new thermoplastic polymers enable the production of medical devices with a very low coefficient of friction and wear, low noise (squeaking) and eliminate the need for external lubrication. Medical devices manufactured with these new materials operate smoothly with a high degree of patient comfort and consistency from the very first use. Hostaform(R) MT(R) SlideX(TM) POM is a competitive alternative to various kinds of high-performance, tribologically modified compounds. When compared to alternative materials, Hostaform(R) MT(R) SlideX(TM) POM offers a significantly lower coefficient of friction in medical devices combined with the Celanese medical technology (MT(R)) service package. This results in the potential to reduce costs by removing design constraints and simplifying material combinations in complex devices while avoiding external lubrication in manufacturing processes. The MT(R) service package addresses quality, change control and regulatory compliance in accordance with pharmaceutical and medical industry expectations, based on Celanese's extensive experience with material supply to the medical market. The advantages to the patient as a result of medical device manufacturers using Celanese's tribologically modified Hostaform(R) MT(R) SlideX(TM) POM include: reduction in force required to activate the medical device; no squeaking noise when operating the medical device; and increased comfort during use due to easy sliding properties. With a high mechanical performance profile combined with the Celanese MT(R) service package, Hostaform(R) MT(R) SlideX(TM) POM is well-suited for medical applications such as COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and asthma inhalers, injection devices such as insulin pens, surgical instruments and portable diagnostic medical devices, where low friction, wear and medical compliance are important requirements.
