ABS M30i and P500 are biocompatible engineered thermoplastics with good mechanical strength and complies with ISO 10993 and USP Class VI.

ABS M30i and P500 are high strength materials well suited for the medical, pharmaceutical and food packaging industries. Parts manufactured with ABS M30i or P500 material are bio-compatible (ISO 10993 USP Class VI)* and can be gamma or EtO sterilized. 

ABS M30i or P500 gives you bio-compatible real parts with excellent mechanical properties that are well suited for conceptual modeling, functional prototyping, manufacturing tools, and end-use-parts.

M30i is available in an opaque ivory, whereas, P500 is only available as a Translucent; White, Amber or Red (perfect for unfinished taillight assemblies).

The technical specifications below reflect M-30i, contact CIDEAS for a P500 technical PDF.
