Evonik Cyro LLC Releases New Acrylic Polymers Brochure for Medical Device Applications

Evonik Cyro LLC announces the release of its new 11-page acrylic polymers brochure for the medical industry featuring its CYROLITE®, ACRYLITE® and XT® polymer brands. Written specifically for designers and engineers of medical devices and equipment, the brochure provides details on the polymers’ key properties, chemical resistance, sterilization, processability and more.

As explained in the brochure, Evonik Cyro’s newest acrylic polymer, ACRYLITE® MD acrylic polymers, are ideal for medical diagnostic applications due to their superior optical clarity, transparency and UV transmission. CYROLITE compounds and XT polymers are also outlined in the literature. Both are transparent, impact-modified, acrylic-based multipolymer compounds that are perfect for thin-walled and difficult-to-mold multicavity parts that require exceptional chemical resistance, high heat deflection temperature and impact strength.
