Kraton Performance Polymers, Inc. (NYSE: "KRA"), a leading global producer of styrenic block copolymers and other engineered polymers, announces plans to showcase Cariflex polyisoprene products, the pure and clean alternative to natural rubber for high performance medical applications, at MEDTEC Europe in Stuttgart, Germany.
Kraton Polymers and Dr. Philippe Henderson , Global Innovation Manager for Cariflex polyisoprene products, invite you to participate in a technical presentation entitled, "Super clean polyisoprene polymer and latex for high performance medical devices," at the MEDTEC Innovation Forum 2013 on Wednesday, February 27, 2013 from 3:20 – 4:20 p.m.
Dr. Henderson's presentation will focus on the rising industry demands placed upon medical device manufacturers to help protect health care providers and consumers from infection, contamination, and reactions to natural rubber allergies. Dr. Henderson will discuss how Cariflex polyisoprene products from Kraton Polymers enable these manufacturers to engineer new generations of products that offer an outstanding combination of safety and comfort for both patients and health care professionals. Dr. Henderson will provide detailed, comparative performance data in specific applications, such as medical stoppers and surgical gloves.
Interested parties are encouraged to attend Dr. Henderson's free and highly informative presentation by registering for the conference at the MEDTEC Europe website. You are also invited to meet with Kraton product experts in Booth #1F51 to discover how Cariflex polyisoprene products effectively serve other medical device markets including catheters, tube connectors, needle shields, probe covers, and cohesive bandages without the impurities that cause discoloration, odor, and allergic reactions. Cariflex products offer a pure and versatile option for manufacturing applications that require the high tensile strength and tear resistance of natural rubber. Cariflex polyisoprene latex is a clean alternative that can be substituted for natural rubber latex with minimal capital investment.
