Bayer MaterialScience: New colour-stable PC film

Under the name ‘Makrofol’ LP 209, Bayer MaterialScience, Germany ( www.bayermaterialscience.com ) has developed a polycarbonate film that, thanks to its special additive system, is said to be superior to other plastics used in medical applications. The company says its new film has the necessary colour stability, high impact strength and stiffness required to prevent yellowing when exposed to gamma radiation and electron beams. This high energy radiation is being used increasingly for sterilisation of instruments.
