Thermoplastic player to showcase sheet and film products along with material selection tips at MD&M West

Thermoplastic specialist RTP Company will be showcasing its pellets, sheet, and film products at MD&M West.

RTP’s thermoplastics can be formulated for colour, strength, conductivity, wear resistance, elasticity, and/or flame retardancy. These compounds are developed, manufactured and sold to injection moulders, equipment manufacturers and extrusion companies who use them to create plastic parts and components.

The company’s senior product development engineer Karl Hoppe will give technical talks called ‘Thermoplas-Tips for Material Selection,’ offering advice regarding thermoplastic material selection for medical devices, equipment and components.

RTP’s engineers will also be able to discuss its thermoplastic offerings, focusing on:·

  • , a portfolio of thermoplastic compounds designed to reduce the weight of medical equipment and devices without sacrificing strength or performance.
  • which are aimed to provide strength, durability, chemical resistance and aesthetic advantages for hospital beds, wheelchairs, and mobile equipment like ultrasound and diagnostic machines.
  • that can be formulated with the ability to pass initial bio-compatibility testing, enhance branding opportunities, and be laser marked to meet FDA Unique Identification System regulations.
