A new ultra-fine denier fibre has been added to Honeywell’s Spectra® Medical Grade (MG) BIO fibre line. Given that it is a stronger fibre than polyester, nylon, or other commonly used technologies, Spectra® Ultra Fine (UF) BIO fibre, which is now offered in 25 decitex (dtex), enables minimally invasive cardiovascular and orthopaedic device design and aids in increasing device longevity.

Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), which is ultra-lightweight, ultra-high strength, and produced through a special gel spinning process, is the material used in Honeywell’s Spectra MG BIO fibres, which have superior resistance to chemicals, water, fatigue, friction, and abrasion compared to conventional polyethylene fibre. The range of Spectra MG BIO fibres from Honeywell is 15 times heavier than steel and three times stronger than volume-wise, polyester The highest quality management standard in the medical device sector, ISO 13485, has been attained by Spectra MG BIO fibre, allowing it to provide clients with end-to-end manufacturing lot traceability.

Zachary Murnane, medical fibre worldwide business manager for Honeywell Spectra, says the launch of Spectra UF BIO fibre in 25 dtex “demonstrates Honeywell’s continuous commitment to building a variety of medical grade fibres that meet a wide range of medical device demands.” “Having access to this technology is essential for enabling ongoing innovation that will make orthopaedic and cardiovascular surgeries safer and more effective for patients around the world. In the life sciences sector, Honeywell remains a key supplier to organisations in the healthcare sector.

The new Spectra UF BIO fibre from Honeywell Within Q1 2023, in 25 dtex will be commercially available everywhere. Later in the first half of 2023, a 10 dtex Spectra Ultra Fine BIO fibre will be made available.
