IxefÂ® GS-1022 is a 50% glass-fiber reinforced grade of polyarylamide (PARA) available in several colors. Parts molded from these colored resins can withstand high-energy gamma radiation without significant change in appearance and physical properties. IxefÂ® GS-1022 resins demonstrate no evidence of cytotoxicity, sensitization, intracutaneous reactivity or acute systemic toxicity, based on biocompatibility testing as defined by ISO 10993-1.Features: Biocompatible; E-beam Sterilizable; Ethylene Oxide Sterilizable; Good Chemical Resistance; Good Creep Resistance; Good Dimensional Stability; Good Sterilizability; High Flow; High Strength; Low Moisture Absorption; Outstanding Surface Finish; Radiation (Gamma) Resistant; Radiation Sterilizable; Radiotranslucent; Ultra High StiffnessUses: Dental Applications; Hospital Goods; Medical Devices; Medical/Healthcare Applications; Surgical InstrumentsInjection Molding Notes: IxefÂ® compounds are shipped in moisture-resistant packages at moisture levels according to specifications. Sealed, undamaged bags should be preferably stored in a dry room at a maximum temperature of 50Â°C (122Â°F) and should be protected from possible damage. If only a portion of a package is used, the remaining material should be transferred into a sealable container. It is recommended that IxefÂ® resins be dried prior to molding.Additional Properties: Moisture Absorption - Internal Method 1.5 %Information provided by Solvay Specialty Polymers.
