These new thermoplastic polymers enable the production of medical devices with a very low coefficient of friction and wear, low noise (squeaking) and eliminate the need for external lubrication. Medical devices manufactured with these new materials operate smoothly with a high degree of patient comfort and consistency from the very first use.

Hostaform MT SlideX POM is a competitive alternative to various kinds of high-performance, tribologically modified compounds. When compared to alternative materials, Hostaform MT SlideX POM offers a significantly lower coefficient of friction in medical devices combined with the Celanese medical technology (MT®) service package. This results in the potential to reduce costs by removing design constraints and simplifying material combinations in complex devices while avoiding external lubrication in manufacturing processes.

The MT® service package addresses quality, change control and regulatory compliance in accordance with pharmaceutical and medical industry expectations, based on Celanese’s extensive experience with material supply to the medical market.

The advantages to the patient as a result of medical device manufacturers using Celanese’s tribologically modified Hostaform MT SlideX POM include:

reduction in force required to activate the medical device
no squeaking noise when operating the medical device
increased comfort during use due to easy sliding properties

Hostaform® Extreme Glass Coupled (XGC)

POM for Demanding Structural Elements

Hostaform® XGC Series offers unique solutions for structural elements and it enables manufacturers to enhance performance in high mechanical stress situations at reduced system costs.

Hostaform XGC series delivers an enhanced balance of strength, stiffness and toughness over a broad temperature range. It has improved long-term creep and fatigue resistance at high temperatures, and is a great candidate for applications where the material may be exposed to higher levels of mechanical and cyclic stresses such as:

Gear housings
Drive gears
Window lifting plates
Sunroof guides
Conveyor linkages components and applications

Hostaform XGC utilizes our hybrid back bone technology, providing more mechanical enhancements than existing glass fiber technology.
