V 29 G

V 29 G

V 29 G is a polypropylene homopolymer featuring high fluidity and superior transparency. The product is designed for the production of three-part syringes and a wide range of medical articles. V 29 G is sterilisable both with gamma and E-beam irradiation and with ETO. The processability of V 29 G is excellent. Because of the high melt flow, mould filling is easy and cycle times are short. The warpage is minimal. Items produced with V 29 G feature good stiffness, high impact strength, and high chemical resistance and offer a really outstanding transparency. The major application for this product are highly transparent 3-part syringes and a diverse range of health-care items and labware such as needle hubs, pipette tips, test tubes, jugs, cylinders and containers.
Syringes and other end-items moulded with V 29 G are suitable for E-beam and gamma ray sterilisation and have a shelf life of well over 5 years after sterilisation with dosage levels of 2.5 Mrads. Items moulded with this product are also suitable for sterilisation by ethylene oxide and heat. Because this product features outstanding transparency and higher stiffness than conventional random copolymers, V 29 G is also suitable for high quality household articles and packaging components.
