Techmer PM, BASF launch new Ultrason colors for healthcare applications in North America

Posted on February 11, 2020

WYANDOTTE, MI, February 11, 2020 – Techmer PM and BASF will launch custom colors with USP Class V or VI and ISO 10993 compliance for BASF’s Ultrason® S, P and E (PSU, PPSU and PESU) polyarylsulfone grades at MD&M West Expo. 

 

“Our new colored grades will combine shorter development cycles, unique color options and lower scrap rates,” said Hung Pham, Ultrason Strategic Business Development Manager, BASF Specialty Polymers North America. “This will help our customers evaluate and determine suitability faster in their healthcare applications by removing the custom color blending process.”

 

Ultrason polyarylsulfone grades are thermoplastics used to make medical devices such as sterilization trays, research cages, diagnostic equipment, orthopedic sizing and others. These colored grades will provide the same benefits that Ultrason is globally known for: consistently high quality and excellent mechanical, chemical and high temperature performance.   

 

“Techmer PM has always had a big role within the healthcare industry and the color
development process,” said Jack Chiang, Director of Applications Development, Techmer PM North America. “This collaboration with BASF will help the customer differentiate their products within the healthcare industry and help simplify the selection process."

 

Small-volume custom colors of Ultrason S, P and E grades are available through Techmer PM’s HIFILL® brand; larger volumes can be obtained through BASF representatives. Sample color chips are on display at the MD&M West Expo in Anaheim, CA, February 11–13, 2020, at the Techmer PM booth, number 2433.
