WEB EXCLUSIVE: Ticona, Florence, Ky., introduced Hostaform MT (medical technology) 8U05, a UV-detectable acetal copolymer for easier quality control in production of complex medical devices. The new grade contains an additive to enables easy inspection with UV light. During assembly of complex devices such as dry powder inhalers or other pharmaceutical dosing systems, optical UV sensors are used to help determine whether all components are present and properly installed. The new material could considerably reduce reject rates and costs, according to Ticona.
