Reduce Weight and Cost with Ixef® PARA
Ixef GS-1022 is a 50% glass fiber reinforced polyarylamide (PARA) compound that uniquely combines high stiffness with an ultra-smooth finish that’s on par with painted metal.
It can be sterilized using high-energy gamma radiation without any significant change in appearance or loss of mechanical properties. These features make it well-suited for replacing metal in single-use instruments, thereby eliminating central service costs associated with the sterilization of reusable instruments.
Mechanical Properties vs. Metals
Ixef GS resins demonstrate no evidence of cytotoxicity, sensitization, intracutaneous reactivity or acute systemic toxicity, based on biocompatibility testing as defined by ISO 10993:1
