In recent weeks Polymer Compounders Limited (PCL) has been contributing as much capacity as possible at their manufacturing site in Durham, United Kingdom in support of the global COVID-19 relief efforts. PCL has been manufacturing various high specification materials from their range for use in ventilators and PPE equipment that are currently in short supply. These are used in both the UK’s standard hospitals and the newly commissioned Nightingale ‘pop up’ hospitals across the country. As PCL is already a high-volume supplier of Flame Retardant PC/ABS and ABS materials, this has meant that they have been able to help in this time of national emergency.
As PCL are regularly manufacturing these materials, this enabled the business to fit the manufacturing of these COVID-19 specific orders seamlessly into its manufacturing process. All of these products have been despatched within days of order placement.
The following PCL grades may be suitable for use in your moulded products during this time, Flame Retardant PC-ABSCOM™ B1000 and ABSCOM® F350 which are both a good fit for medical and ventilator equipment.
PCL would like to help and support you at this time of the COVID-19 global pandemic. If you have any requirement for polymers to be used in ventilators or the medical industry, please call our main office on (+44) 0191 378 3737, and we would be more than happy to help.
