Value Plastics Introduces a New Antimicrobial Acrylic Material to Their Luer Fittings

05 Aug 2013

Fort Collins, Colo. – Value Plastics, a premier OEM supplier of precision plastic components and a Nordson company, introduces CYROLITE® Protect, an acrylic-based multipolymer compound manufactured by Evonik Corporation.

The material is resistant to chemicals and plasticizers found in flexible tubing and provides antimicrobial capabilities against a variety of microorganisms commonly found in healthcare facilities as tested by JIS Z 2801 protocol.

Value Plastics’ luer fittings are part of a standardized system of small-scale tubing connectors used to make secure leak-proof unions in medical devices and laboratory instruments. Available in the FTLL230-CM550 and MTLL230-CM550 luers, the antimicrobial material will give you peace-of-mind knowing you have a secure connection, with sanitary fittings fighting against harmful microbes.

Value Plastics will add additional parts with the CYROLITE® Protect resin based upon customer demand. Please contact your sales representative to discuss further.

For ease of testing concepts, Value Plastics offers samples in all available configurations. For samples or to order these luers, contact Value Plastics directly. Luer products are available from Value Plastics through its direct sales force, web site, major industry catalog sources and worldwide business partners.
