Sterilization by irradiation, especially gamma radiation, has been increasingly used for medical plastics. However, there are still challenges for retention of color, mechanic properties, and hygiene & safety after radiation treatment, all pointing to the importance of stabilization against radiation. Limax Chemical is pleased to supply our RS-06 to meet the market demand for a high-quality radiation stabilizer for medical plastics.
What Merits Does RS-06 Have? Why Is It to Be Used?
I. RS-06 shows excellent gamma-ray resistance when added to medical plastics. Thus it is widely used for medical appliances that are subjected to gamma-radiation sterilization.
II. RS-06 can also be used for stabilization against electron beam and beta-radiation.
III. RS-06 is free of any phenols including nonylphenol and BPA, and does not contain any epoxides including ESBO; it complies with RoHS and REACH.
IV. As a radiation stabilizer, RS-06 is highly efficient in a variety of plastic materials which include PVC, PP, PE, PS, PA, ABS, PC and PU.
