CLEVELAND , March 31, 2022 (press release) –

Avient today announced that it will launch new biocompatible colorants at the upcoming Medical Device & Manufacturing West exhibition in Anaheim, California. Colorant Chromatics™ Transcend™ Premier Healthcare Colorants are formulated to offer ultra-high heat resistance and performance specifically for medical applications, and are available in a range of vivid colors.

Transcend Premier Healthcare Colorants are being launched in polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) resin, which can withstand up to 1,000 autoclave cycles and high heat sterilization to 150°C. These resins also maintain dimensional stability while providing chemical resistance against the effects of harsh cleaning agents.

Clean, vibrant colors in both transparent and opaque options help set this line of high-temperature and high-performance colorants apart from other options. Additional iterations are in development for other high-performance resins, including polyethersulfone (PES) and polysulfone (PSU).

“This range of biocompatible and regulatory-compliant formulations answers a demand for cleaner, brighter colors in the healthcare space,” said Michael Garratt, president, Color, Additives & Inks, EMEA. “Healthcare providers want to surround their patients with a welcoming, friendly environment while maintaining the utmost in safety and product performance. Our Transcend colorants help address all of these needs.”

Transcend Premier Healthcare Colorants are available globally. They are tested to ISO 10993 standards, and can be customized with the addition of functional additives to enhance product performance. Low minimum order quantities offer specialty healthcare customers greater processing flexibility and inventory efficiencies.

Avient will exhibit at MD&M West 2022 in booth #2101 on April 12-14, 2022.
