Press Release - LTL Introduces ColorRx® NB Line

ColorRx NB Grades are designed for use in medical equipment enclosures

such as monitoring and imaging devices, where body contact is not an issue.
The NB series is not based on resins and colorants that have been tested for biocompatibility and should not be used in medical applications that require biocompatible materials. According to Phil Dix, medical marketing and development manager at LTL, “ColorRx NB grades offer improved economics compared to ColorRx RX grades that are based on biocompatibility-tested materials for device applications involving body contact.”

The following grades are offered in four standard colors - white, two cool grays, blue - and can be manufactured in custom colors as well.
