VELOX GmbH announced a new distribution partnership with Solvay. The company will be distributing the healthcare grades of Ixef PARA, a special polyarylamide containing 50% glass fibres and best-suited for the development of medical devices as single-use surgical tools.

Ixef PARA is said to be best-suited for the development of complex parts requiring both strength and a smooth, beautiful surface. Even with glass loadings of 50%, the material insures a high-gloss, glass-free finish. As a very high-flow resin, Ixef PARA can fill walls as thin as 0.5 mm.

“This unique product has great mechanical properties perfect for metal replacement, for instance in single-use instruments,” highlights Anja Flossbach, Product Manager for Ixef PARA at VELOX.

Operators can thereby eliminate central service costs associated with the sterilization of reusable instruments. Further benefits are weight reduction and accordingly cost savings as well as a great level of design freedom.

Ixef PARA is biocompatible according to ISO 10993. VELOX offers the material in different gamma stabilised colours.
