Tritan on Tour! Sept. 19th, 2017

Designing Disinfectant-Ready Medical Devices

Are the devices you design ready for aggressive medical disinfectants? 

The designer is the point where innovative creativity crashes head-on into the real-world needs of durable functionality in a health care environment.
Unfortunately, many device housings and hardware designed just a few years ago were made with materials that lack the right combination of impact strength and chemical resistance. They crack, craze, and ultimately fail when challenged by the increased use of aggressive medical disinfectants—combined with the applied stress of greater portability. 
Connecting the dots between design flexibility, chemical resistance, and impact strength is critical for selecting the best material for reliable clear and opaque medical devices. That’s why Eastman created a 60-minute webinar to provide new information about: 

Patient safety and HAI prevention

Webinar available on demand— Chemical resistance in fluid management systems

In case you missed this informative webinar on 11 May 2016, it is now available for you to watch whenever you choose. The webinar addresses in detail:
•  The need for chemical resistance in connectors, stopcocks, and filtration components
•  How engineering polymers compare for compatibility with drugs, lipids, and carrier solvents
•  How to use Eastman Tritan copolyesters in your fluid management components to improve patient safety

Join us at Molding 2016

Eastman will be presenting and exhibiting. Molding 2016 is the premier conference focused on innovations in injection molding technology—with information you can’t find anywhere else. That makes it the perfect place to show and tell the unique advantages of Eastman Tritan copolyester.  

Join the Tritan experts Mar. 29 to 31, 2016, to learn how Tritan can improve your processes and end products. 

Join us at IHHS!

Again this year, Eastman will be exhibiting at IHHS—International Home and Housewares Show—in Chicago, IL. 

Join us at Booth S4875 from Mar. 5 to 8 to learn all the ways that Tritan from Eastman is clearly better for the housewares and durables markets than other materials. 

And you’re invited to a swing at the Eastman Batting Cage—where you can test Tritan toughness and durability firsthand.

Join us at MD&M West!

You can speak with a Tritan expert in person at MD&M West. 

Eastman will be exhibiting in Booth 2407, February 9 to 11. Stop by to see how Eastman Tritan copolyester and other medical-grade polymers are helping device makers meet regulatory requirements, improve patient safety, and ensure confidence in end-product performance.
While at our booth, you can pick up two white papers with great information about important roles chemical resistance plays in preventing health care-acquired infections and complying with best practices for oncology drug delivery devices.  

Designing for Manufacturability Webinar Tomorrow!

The Tritan experts at Eastman are hosting a live webinar on December 10, 2015, from 11:00 to 12:00 EST. This webinar will cover these important considerations to help you design for manufacturability:
