February 4, 2019

ANAHEIM, Calif. – February 4, 2019 – At Medical Design and Manufacturing (MD&M) West this week, PolyOne is highlighting its extensive portfolio of polymers, functional additives, and colorants for the healthcare industry while also featuring its “More Than Materials” approach to helping customers tackle their most important materials challenges.

Case in point: PolyOne recently worked with Dexcom, Inc. to provide material and colorant solutions for their latest product, the Dexcom G6 Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System. This project combined PolyOne’s strengths and expertise – distributed medical-grade materials, FDA-compliant colorants, pre-colored medical grade polymers, and design and processing support – to create color consistency and accelerated product development for the Dexcom G6 CGM.

PolyOne’s exhibit will highlight the following service, material, and additive solutions:

  • Colorant Chromatics™ High Temperature Formulations and Color Concentrates: High-temperature (above 300°F/150°C) polymers and colorant / functional additive packages for healthcare applications
  • NEUTM Express Service: Delivering speed to customers’ R&D process with rapid prototyping and sampling of customized materials for a multitude of in-vivo devices
  • Trilliant™ HC Thermoplastics: High-performance formulations with excellent chemical resistance and durability for medical device enclosures; available in standard grades or customized formulations from an array of base polymers 
  • Pre-certified OnCap™ Plus: Functional additives that complement OnColor™ HC Plus colorant formulations, giving customers a wider range of resin choices
  • New OnCap™ Low Retention Additive: Enables polyolefin containers to deliver their last drop with ease, eliminates secondary operations such as coating, and is compatible with all sterilization methods
  • Resilience™ HC Rigid Vinyl: Offers excellent moldability and surface finish, withstands a broad range of disinfectants, and provides required flammability and UV performance  

In addition, PolyOne’s distribution business unit recently collaborated with material supplier Covestro to produce an original eBook, titled, “TrendWatch™ Materials Matter for Connected Health,” which offers insights into the IoMT (Internet of Medical Things) landscape and implications for material selection and design.
