Medical Solution

Stringent quality standards and outstanding performance

Innovative Solution Partner for Medical Applications

TSRC develops a range of new VECTOR SEBS products that are suitable for medical applications. A key distinguishing feature of medical grade SEBS versus typical materials is plasticizers free. Moreover, VECTOR SEBS products also provide superior mechanical strength, high clarity and excellent polyolefin compatibility. TSRC VECTOR SEBS meets stringent quality standards and delivers outstanding performance in medical applications such as IV bags / film, tubing, stoppers, liners, syringe plunger tips and closures.

VECTOR SEBS

VECTOR SEBS (Styrene-Ethylene/Butylene-Styrene copolymer) is designed for medical applications as alternative to PVC due to its eco-friendly feature. VECTOR SEBS passed ISO 10993-5 cytotoxicity test, USP Class VI test, complied with medical GMP production, and is well suited for general modification of articles in medical applications.

  • Alternative to Polyvinylchloride (PVC) without plasticizer
  • Wide formulation latitude – processable both in Oil Free & Oil-Extended
  • High Polypropylene (PP) compatibility with excellent clarity
  • Thermoplastics – easy processing & recyclable
  • IV Bags / Film
  • Medical Tubing
  • Medical Stoppers & Liners
  • PP Closures / PP Ports

IV Bags / Film

VECTOR SEBS is suitable to apply in medical single and multi-layer film. The designed structure provides good compatibility with Polypropylene (PP) at various ratio to fulfill desired features such as printability, flexibility, and good sealing strength. In addition, the high flowability of VECTOR SEBS enables non-oil extended process available to meet medical requirements. The material also passes USP class VI test and ISO 10993-5 cytotoxicity test to prove the reliability of medical products.

Features

High clarity

Good impact resistance

Easy processing

Excellent compatibility with PP

Recommended Grades

DP-6245D

Medical Tubing

VECTOR SEBS is suitable for medical tubing applications due to its high flexibility, high transparency, and good softness as ideal alternative material to PVC without any plasticizer. By different ratio blending with Polypropylene (PP), the tubing hardness could be adjusted to meet different tubing requirements such IV tubing, suction tubing, dialysis tubing, etc. VECTOR SEBS passes USP class VI test and ISO 10993-5 cytotoxicity test to prove the reliability of medical products.

Features

High clarity

Good impact resistance

Good kink resistance

Easy processing

Excellent compatibility with PP

DP-6245D

Medical Stoppers & Liners

VECTOR SEBS can be compounded with Polypropylene (PP) and paraffinic oil in common process for injection molding into various medical devices such as medical stopper and liner as ideal alternative material to vulcanized rubber like isoprene rubber (IR) and isobutylene isoprene rubber (IIR). VECTOR SEBS based compound in medical stopper and liner application has low fragment, good leak resistance after needle punctures. VECTOR SEBS passes USP class VI test and ISO10993-5 cytotoxicity test to prove the reliability of medical products.

Features

Leak resistance

Low fragmentation

Easy processing

Chemical inertness

Recommended Grades

VECTOR 8101

PP Closures / PP Ports

For non-PVC infusion system, Polypropylene (PP) closure and port are two of the key components which commonly use SEBS as modifier to enhance impact strength. VECTOR SEBS has good compatibility with PP and can be compounded in common process for injection molding. It also passes USP class VI test and ISO10993-5 cytotoxicity test to prove the reliability of medical products, suitable to apply in PP closure and port as plastic modifier.

Features

Leak resistance

Low fragmentation

Adjustable hardness
