Exceptionally transparent materials ideal for life science applications
Why choose COC/COP?
- Best in class transparency and light transmission
- Superior chemical resistance
- Low water resistance
- Excellent durability
What are some common COC/COP applications?
- Medical devices
- Research components
- Microfluidics applications
COC and COP share glass’s exceptional optical properties while also offering exceptional transparency, low birefringence, a high Abbe number, and high heat resistance. Unlike polycarbonate and acrylics, COC and COP exhibit moisture insensitivity, giving them an advantage over competing materials. The materials’ biocompatibility makes COC/COP great options for microfluidics and life science, although the unavailability of stock shapes is a potential downside.
