ChronoThane P

ROBUST, RESILIENT AND ADAPTABLE: HIGH PERFORMANCE WITH SUPERIOR ADAPTABILITY 

Aromatic Polyether-Based Urethanes

ChronoThane P is a family of aromatic ether based polyurethane elastomers. With a long history of reliable performance, this medical grade polymer has the versatility to be used across a broad range of applicational areas including catheters, ports and access devices. 

These biocompatible materials possess characteristics such as low coefficient of friction, low extractables, dimensional stability, high impact resistance, and excellent tear strength.

 

ChronoThane P allows for ease of manufacturability and can be processed using conventional extrusion or injection molding equipment. These materials are available in hardnesses ranging from 75 Shore A to 75 Shore D.

ChronoThane P processing can be optimized by drying to a moisture content equal to or less than 0.05% by weight prior to melt processing. 

Typically, the pellets must be dried for 3-4 hours with a dryer inlet air temperature of 180ºF +/- 20ºF. We recommend a machine-mounted desiccant-type hopper dryer, capable of reaching and maintaining a dew point of -40ºF.  If dry times are in excess of 8-10 hours, a hopper dryer temperature of 120-150ºF is usually sufficient to achieve optimal moisture content.
