Foster Unveils Heat & Light Stabilized PEBA Copolymers for Medical Device Application

Published on 2014-04-16. Author : SpecialChem

Foster Corporation, among the leaders in custom polymers for medical devices, introduces heat and light stabilized polyether block amide (PEBA) copolymers that resist oxidation and degradation during storage. Foster HLS™ formulations are manufactured from medical grade Pebax polymers and USP VI additives for use in medical device applications such as vascular catheters. PEBA copolymers, like many polymers, degrade due to environmental stress agents such as oxygen, moisture, heat and ultraviolet light over time.
