They do not assure or guarantee chemical resistance, quality of products and their merchantability in a legally binding way. Our products are not defined for use in medical or dental implants. Existing commercial patents have to be observed. The customer is sorely responsible for the quality and suitability of products for the application and has to test usage and processing prior to use. Data sheet values are subject to periodic review, the most recent update can be found at ensingerplastics.com. Technical changes reserved. European-made or imported varieties comply with REACH Regulation 1907/2006 / EC as amended Unless otherwise noted, these values were determined by tests on injection moulded samples, dry as moulded. The corresponding values and information are no minimum or maximum values, but guideline values that can be used primarily for comparison purposes for material selection. These values are within the normal tolerance range of product properties and do not represent guaranteed property values. Therefore they shall not be used for specification purposes. In order to achieve optimum mechanical properties, pre-drying of the material is recommended with the parameters mentioned above Filaments should preferably be stored in dry rooms at normal temperatures and be protected from direct sunlight.
