RTP-2000 HC Series
Resistant against Harsh Cleaners and Disinfectants
RTP Company, Winona, MN/USA, has developed a proprietary alloy technology designed to maintain strength, functionality, and integrity, even with repeated exposure to hospital cleaners used to disinfect medical devices.
Known as the RTP 2000 HC series, these thermoplastic compounds can help solve cracking issues in existing devices and open a new realm of possibilities for the design of hospital equipment and plastic housings that require frequent disinfection, such as mobile ultrasound and x-ray machines, enteral feeding devices, drug infusion pumps, blood filtration equipment, and more.
The RTP 2000 HC series provides a unique solution to a widespread problem: the damage and premature, catastrophic failure of plastic devices, equipment, and housings caused by harsh cleaners and disinfectants used in medical settings. In developing the RTP 2000 HC series, engineers from RTP Company tested numerous polymers for damage resistance to six popular chemical classes of hospital cleaners and disinfectants. Molded compounds were subjected to stressors in order to replicate field failures and relative resistance. The best performer was optimized for physical properties, chemical damage resistance, colorability and flammability. The RTP 2000 HC series are now available globally in Flame Retardant or non-Flame Retardant versions, and the compounds are colorable. It is also available in sheet format in thicknesses ranging from .02 – .25” through Engineered Sheet Products (ESP), a division of RTP Company.
