Epoxy moulding compounds from Duresco offer high durability and resistance to radiation and chemicals



Materials for medical equipment have to withstand countless sterilisation cycles without harm. In addition, those used in CT scanners must display a high degree of resistance to X-rays. Epoxy moulding compounds from Duresco possess properties that make them ideally suited for such challenging applications.

BENEFITS DURING PROCESSING



  • Moderate injection pressures
  • High flow-path/wall-thickness ratios
  • Limited mould shrinkage and minimal post-mould shrinkage
  • No post-curing required

BENEFITS IN END PROPERTIES



  • Exceptionally durable when subjected to repeated disinfection and sterilisation cycles
  • Good resistance to high-energy radiation
  • No release of volatile materials
  • High dimensional stability and temperature resistance
  • Hermetic encapsulation of electronic components
