Vyon® is a unique, high-performance porous plastic material manufactured from virgin grade plastic polymers, polyethylene (high density and ultra-high molecular weight) and polypropylene. Proprietary sintering conditions produce porous structures composed of tortuous interconnected pathways with minimal dead-end pores. These features offer greater pore distribution, controlled flow of liquids and gases and an ability to create products ideal for filtration, separation and retention of biological and chemical materials. From flat discs to 3D moulded structures, Vyon® is routinely manufactured into a variety of shapes and sizes to suit your specific application. Tightly controlled manufacturing processes ensure that Vyon® porous plastic components for your product are produced with consistent reproducible and controlled critical properties such as thickness, diameter and porosity. Leading the way of porous plastic innovation, Vyon® is a versatile material that can be treated for enhanced cleanliness with low leachables and extractable and rendered hydrophilic or hydrophobic for specific applications.
