The Need for Chemically Resistant Plastics and Antimicrobial Additives in a Pandemic Environment

Date: June 9

Time: 2:00 PM EST

Speaker: Tim McGinnis | Medical Business Manager

With the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s been renewed interest in ESCR (environmental stress cracking resistant) materials and antimicrobial additives for any durable plastic product. Once used only in clinical environments, today’s healthcare-grade chemical disinfectants, which kill viruses, bacteria and other microbes, are now being used pervasively on all types of plastic products, especially products and touch surfaces in public spaces. Unfortunately, these caustic chemical disinfectants attack molded-in stresses which result in cracking, crazing and premature product failure. There are also many questions regarding the available antimicrobial additives, their use, efficacy and associated marketing claims. In this session we will review critical material performance considerations, including ESCR by material type, and the different antimicrobial additive technologies which effectively kill microbes between cleanings and their compatibility with a variety of resins.
