Product Description
Product Description
TOPAS 8007D-61 is an externally lubricated version of our 8007 series of injection molding resins, targeting injection blow molding (IBM) and injection stretch blow molding (ISBM) applications. Like the rest of the 8007 series, 8007D-61 is a glass-clear amorphous polymer with outstanding moisture barrier, chemical resistance, high purity and a non-reactive surface making it an excellent choice for healthcare and food products. Lower leachables and extractables of TOPAS COC preserve food and drug stability and quality. It is a non-polar substrate that does not promote adsorption, denaturation, aggregation, or precipitation like glass can. Analytical results are more accurate with pure TOPAS COC in contact with sensitive chemistries. Moisture-sensitive food, healthcare and consumer products stay fresh longer.
