Chemical-resistant materials stand up against hospital cleaners

Copied to clipboard

Healthcare professionals often face demanding workloads, but equipment that is easy and comfortable to use can help make their jobs easier. It’s important that these items are also durable and withstand disinfectants. That’s where our materials step in.

Helping Howard Technology Solutions create a durable healthcare cart

The HI-Care E 2-tier cart from Howard Technology Solutions—an industry-recognized ergonomic mobile solution—is tailored to fit multiple and varying workflows. This storage cart offers features to automate, update and communicate based upon individual facility needs.

Since the HI-Care E 2-tier cart is used in hospitals, it’s frequently decontaminated with harsh chemical cleaners. As a reliable supplier of medical-grade polycarbonates, we helped Howard Technology Solutions find the right chemical-resistant material that can stand up against these disinfectants.

Our lightweight Makroblend® M525 PC+polyester blend delivers necessary chemical resistance and toughness to several parts on the HI-Care E 2-tier cart base and work surface. This polycarbonate blend is also biocompatible according to ISO 10993-5 and ISO 10993-10 for contact with uncompromised skin only.

Our own Zac Williams, market development, Healthcare – Polycarbonates, shares more about our collaboration with Howard Technology Solutions here.
