New color concentrates are designed specifically for PEBA (polyether block amide) TPEs and nylon 12 resins used in medical applications. New from Clariant Masterbatches, Holden, Mass., they are the latest addition to its Renolmed family of USP Class-VI compliant color masterbatches, which incorporate tested and certified pigments and carrier resins. They are produced in Lewiston, Me., on extrusion lines specially designed for manufacturing medicalgrade masterbatches. Available in a wide range of opaque colors and translucent and transparent tints, Renol-med concentrates are reportedly suited to healthcare uses involving skin contact and short-term contact (under 30 days) with the body, body fluids, or drugs.
