Sultron® LSG R5100 PPSU


Sultron® LSG R5100 PPSU (Life Science Grade) stock shapes are made from unfilled Radel® PPSU resin that is pre-assessed for biocompatibility. The stock shape is also pre-assessed for biocompatibility for up to 24 hours contact with body and tissue according to USP VI and ISO 10993. Some color variations are also pre-assessed for use in wetted contact applications in bioprocessing. 

With superior hydrolysis resistance, Sultron® LSG R5100 PPSU shapes are highly resilient against repeated autoclaving cycles. In addition, components made from this material exhibit resistance to common acids and bases over a broad temperature range, such as commercial washing solutions.

Often favored across the medical and life science fields for their wide array of color options, these PPSU components are excellent candidates for a broad range of applications such as trial implants, sterilization trays, dental and surgical instrument handles, bioprocessing fluid handling caps, couplings, and fittings.
