Qosina (Ronkonkoma, New York) announced today that it is adding to its luer lock connector product line to address a global Zytel nylon shortage.
The new selection of luer lock connectors is made of high-performance Vydyne that the company has in stock. As a result, the connectors are ready for immediate shipment. In addition, the connectors are REACH and RoHS compliant and come with regulatory documentation, CAD drawings and validation test data.
“We proactively assess the supply chain for our products for any potential issues and take steps to mitigate the risks of interruption,” Qosina CEO Scott Herskovitz said in a news release. “In the case of a resin supply issue, Qosina evaluates and sources compatible alternatives, ensuring our ongoing commitment to business continuity.”
Vydyne 21SPF is a general-purpose, lubricated PA66 resin with an enhanced crystallization temperature, according to Qosina. The product has been designed primarily for fast cycle time for injection-molding fabrication.
