Spiral Flow Comparisons

The spiral flow demonstration is an effective way to compare the flowability characteristics of Eastman Tritan™ copolyester MX711 and MX731.

When exposed to a disinfectant like Virex® Tb, the spirals tell a powerful story of clarity and chemical resistance. Use the links below to learn more about Eastman Tritan™ copolyester and the effects of sterilization on medical devices. 

Application Highlights

  • Flowability for easy processing
  • Chemical resistance — all test spirals dipped in Virex® Tb
  • Demonstrates the effect of residual stress in molded parts upon exposure to chemicals/disinfectants
