Chemical-resistant materials stand up against hospital cleaners
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.
