INEOS Styrolution Introduces New ASA Grade for small medical devices

Luran S MED 797S SPF30 is one of the first ASA materials in the market specifically for medical device housings

  • By ICN Bureau | September 18, 2023

INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, announced the introduction of a new ASA ‘MED’ material dedicated to applications in the healthcare industry. It was designed specifically having small medical device housings and casings in mind.

The new Luran S MED 797S SPF30 is a member of INEOS Styrolution’s ASA product family Luran S. Luran S excels with strong property performance such as chemical resistance, UV resistance, and impact strength. Suitable for injection moulding applications, Luran S offers excellent flowability for easy processing.

Luran S MED 797S SPF30, available in NR (Natur) and in white (WT000112), builds on these strengths. The product shows excellent chemical resistance against alcohols (e.g. IPA, ethanol, propanol) or alcohol based disinfectants. It also shows good resistance against quaternary ammonium or glutaral based disinfectants making it a material of choice for clinical environments.

Bernd Elbert, Market Development Manager at INEOS Styrolution says: “The market segment of small, mobile medical and hospital devices is growing rapidly. The properties of our new Luran S MED 797S SPF30 make it a very strong contender for device housings and casings in this specific category. I invite every application designer to explore our new product for their next project.”
