How To Improve Injection Molding Processability Using Transparent Medical ABS Resin – Detailed In White Paper Published By Toray Industries

New York, NY: Toray, Industries Inc., presents processing and injection molding details for TOYOLAC® ABS transparent medical resin providing significant cost-advantages when injection molding TOYOLAC® due to lower operating temperatures and lower pressure requirements compared to polycarbonate. 

Processors can achieve faster cycle times with more mold cavitation due to the better flowability of TOYOLAC® at lower temperatures. TOYOLAC® operating cylinder temperature ranges from 210℃ up to 260℃ providing easier resin flow resulting in decreased cycle times. Lower operating temperature reduces energy costs, decreases wear on tooling, and decreases down-time from necessary mold repair resulting in overall increased mold life.


TOYOLAC® has proven a cost-effective replacement for many medical applications requiring transparent plastic. Applications include housings, infusion sets, and other drug and blood contact devices where superior injection molding, processability and high strength properties make TOYOLAC® the ideal replacement for transparent polycarbonate.

Additional TOYOLAC® properties include:

  • Biocompatible, Bisphenol-A Free, sterilizable 
  • Superior scratch resistance, structural strength and stiffness 
  • Robust chemical resistance for lipids, alcohol and cleaning agents 
  • Excellent high and low temperature performance 
  • Easy to Injection Mold, Glue and Print 
  • Excellent Solvent Adhesive Properties

Transparent ABS Resin TOYOLAC® presents major opportunities for medical design engineers and custom molders to develop better components and final-use products particularly for liquid-contact medical devices. TOYOLAC® has become a popular thermoplastic due to superior hardness, toughness and resistance properties compared to traditional thermoplastics. The result is that TOYOLAC® resin has achieved application success in thousands of medical products worldwide.
