Are your device housings cracking, breaking, and prematurely failing? Are keyboards and trackballs getting sticky and falling apart? Do your customers like the way your equipment looks in patient rooms after two years in service? What are your customers doing to increase these failure rates?
How much could greater product reliability add to your bottom line?
These and other questions will be explored during a free webinar presented by Eastman Chemical Company. This webinar will take an in-depth look at how device performance is being compromised by the increased use of aggressive cleaners, medical disinfectants, and disinfectant wipes.
Presenters will also examine the roles customers and material performance can play in increasing medical device durability and extending product life. Many currently used plastics become sticky, wear thin in high-touch areas, and crack, crumble, or shatter after only a few months in service.
Finally, the discussion will compare the cost of device failure with the cost of replacing traditional housing materials with Eastman Tritan™ copolyester.
Copolyesters from Eastman have long set the standard for durability, compatibility with frequently used hospital cleaners and disinfectants, and resistance to chemical attack from drugs and hand sanitizers. Tritan for medical housings offers unique, opaque copolyester solutions with exceptional properties for medical environments, including:
- Outstanding chemical resistance
- Inherent toughness
- Flame retardance
- True color match and retention
