About this webinar

Medical grade Eastman Tritan™ copolyester delivers peace of mind without sacrificing performance in medical device applications.

Tritan is an innovative, clear medical-grade polymer that delivers a unique balance of design, processing and physical properties for medical devices. Tritan is also available in a high-flow product that is ideal for long flow runs and intricate detail.
Tritan can add value to safe, durable, reliable and innovative medical-device designs. Tritan holds special value for applications that feature the following attributes relevant in the medical industry.
  • Sterilization stability
    Tritan offers compatibility with many popular sterilization methods — and has outstanding hydrolytic stability. This balance of properties makes Tritan an excellent choice for IV system components, blood therapy devices, and any parts that face frequent disinfection.

  • Toughness
    Tritan delivers exceptional toughness and reliable durability. So your molded medical devices deliver greater customer satisfaction.

  • Chemical resistance
    Tritan offers excellent resistance to the potential effects of exposure to common substances found in the medical environment.

  • Secondary operations
    Complex medical devices often require secondary operations to complete the assembly or fabrication process of molded or otherwise formed parts. Tritan lends itself to a variety of secondary operations and fabrication techniques including bonding and welding.
