Covestro Makrolon Rx3440 polycarbonate.
Covestro Makrolon Rx3440 polycarbonate.

At this year’s CHINAPLAS, Covestro will be showcasing its new Makrolon Rx3440 as well as other leading high-impact polycarbonate products.

Pierre Moulinie, Ph.D., Global Medical Technology Lead for Industrial Marketing at Covestro will also explain the materials technology of Makrolon Rx3440 in the concurrent event “Tech Talk”, and will discuss the future trend of medical materials.

According to statistics, China has about 3.5 million new cancer cases each year, and the number is still rapidly growing at a speed of 10% a year. During chemotherapy, drugs are often delivered by intravenous (IV) infusion. Some cancers are treated with drugs that contain aggressive solvents that can damage the plastic IV connectors and pose a danger to the patient or the healthcare professional.

For example, the connectors may crack to cause accidental drug leakage and harm the healthcare professional. Cracking and leakage may cause the patient to not receive the right dosage. The increasing occurrence of cancer therefore means increasing pressure to develop better drug infusion systems.

Makrolon Rx3440 polycarbonate is an innovative medical material from Covestro used in luer connectors and other IV components. Extensive lab testing has shown that the material provides best-in-class properties, especially cracking resistance to solvents found in oncology drugs and help prevent damage to connector components.

Meanwhile, Makrolon Rx3440 also has other great physical properties such as modulus, heat resistance, and impact resistance to provide reliable IV connections. The material also meets the high standard of productions from Healthcare OEMs with its high quality and great performance.
