A family of tribologically modified, medically compliant engineered materials unveiled

Hostaform® MT® SlideX™ POM, a family of tribologically modified, medically compliant engineered materials has been unveiled by Celanese Corporation. These new thermoplastic polymers enable the production of medical devices with a very low coefficient of friction and wear, low noise (squeaking) and eliminate the need for external lubrication. Medical devices manufactured with these new materials operate smoothly with a high degree of patient comfort and consistency from the very first use. Hostaform® MT® SlideX™ POM is a competitive alternative to various kinds of high-performance, tribologically modified compounds. When compared to alternative materials, it offers a significantly lower coefficient of friction in medical devices combined with the Celanese medical technology (MT®) service package. This results in the potential to reduce costs by removing design constraints and simplifying material combinations in complex devices while avoiding external lubrication in manufacturing processes. The MT® service package addresses quality, change control and regulatory compliance in accordance with pharmaceutical and medical industry expectations, based on Celanese's extensive experience with material supply to the medical market.
