New Medalist medical wire compound

At the same time, it provides the same electrical performance, elevated service temperature rating, and resistance to chemicals and sunlight as the company's Elexar EL8431, a TPE with more than two decades of service in wire and cable. This new compound is fully compliant with the standards and practical performance requirements of both the electrical and medical sectors.Medalist MD458 has a Shore A hardness of 70, a flammability classification of HB (UL-94), and a maximum continuous operating temperature rating of 105 °C (UL-1581). It has passed standard tests for oil resistance after seven days at 60 °C and UV resistance after 720 h. These properties lend themselves to applications in hospital and healthcare environments requiring flexibility, durability, and chemical resistance.
