4. Materials – Specify UV Stable Plastic

Many plastic enclosures are moulded from ABS because it’s so tough and dependable but we decided to up the ante with EVOTEC: we specified ASA+PC-FR as standard. And not just because the blend includes extremely robust polycarbonate (PC), which is used in CDs and riot shields.

We selected ASA+PC-FR for its UV stability. Yes, most medical enclosures are destined to spend their lives indoors but that doesn’t mean they’re immune to the weakening effects of sunlight. Why should outdoor enclosures have a monopoly on UV protection?
