Grilamid TR FE 11292 is a transparent polyamide which can be repeatedly sterilised at temperatures of 134 °C.
Grilamid TR FE 11292 is a transparent polyamide which can be repeatedly sterilised at temperatures of 134 °C.

EMS-GRIVORY, a specialist in the field of high-performance polyamides, recently launched its latest addition of product range Grilamid TR FE 11292.

It claimed to be the first transparent polyamide worldwide which can be repeatedly sterilised at temperatures of 134 °C using steam sterilisation processes, and which is therefore, particularly well-suited for use in medical applications.

Polymers are today among the most often used materials in the field of medicine. Medical products made of polymer materials are very versatile. They are used, for example, for disposable articles such as syringes, containers, catheters and face masks as well as protheses and implants.

Medical instruments or certain components of these instruments are also made of polymer materials. Used in these innovative instruments, polymers make medical work easier. At the same time, they also contribute to safety of patients and doctors as they are resistant to breakage.

Conditions under which the polymers are used are often very demanding – surgical instruments for example, or applications involving direct contact with disinfectants or other chemicals. Demand for tailor-made polymer materials optimised for specific uses is steadily growing.

On the downside, quantities of waste material to be disposed of has increased greatly due to the use of one-use articles. To counteract this, EMS- GRIVORY has developed a new transparent high-performance polymer which can be sterilised several hundred times and, therefore, is reusable.

Reusable medical products or instruments do, however, involve a certain risk of cross-contamination. Steam sterilisation (also known as autoclave treatment) is a suitable method for safe sterilisation whereby saturated steam in a temperature range from 120 °C to 148 °C is used under high pressure for a stipulated length of time.

It is for exactly this process that EMS-GRIVORY has developed the new high-performance polyamide Grilamid TR FE 11292, which is suitable for repeated steam sterilisation.

The field of use of the new Grilamid TR FE 11292 is greatly diversified. Due to its crystal-clear transparency, high mechanical strength and toughness as well as its good resistance to chemicals, Grilamid TR FE 11292 can be used for multiple applications requiring high transparency such as transparent pump holders, filters, steam valves, containers boxes and toolboxes, ventilation masks, sight windows and much more.
