Sabic Innovative Plastics
introduced nine antimicrobial compounds featuring silver technology at the
Medical Design & Manufacturing West trade show, held Feb. 12-14 in Anaheim.
The nine antimicrobial grades

The range opens the way for Sabic
to pursue applications such as hospital hightouch surfaces, portable diagnostic
equipment, bedrails and catheters.
Separately, Sabic said it is
commercializing Ultem HU1004 polyetherimide resin blend for health-care uses and
Ultem DH1004 resin for non-health-care applications.
HU1004 is suitable for multiple
cycles of hydrogen peroxide-based sterilization.
