In the ever-changing healthcare market from at-home medical devices to antimicrobial properties and medical grade materials, we work with you to help meet strict industry regulations. Many of our medical grade thermoplastics can withstand various sterilization methods, including autoclave, gamma, e-beam and EtO. Some materials are potentially biocompatible and adhere to healthcare management change policies.
We work with you to help comply with the following regulations:
We also offer medical grade materials that are:
These applications require a high level of sterility, biocompatibility, chemical resistance, clarity, as well as low extractables for auto-injectors, inhalers, syringes, catheters, tubing, lures and drip chambers.
For extra-corporeal systems, blood collection and separation, filtration and storage, we provide materials that offer biocompatibility, chemical resistance, clarity, sterility and good flow for processing.
Our healthcare thermoplastics protect packaged products from moisture, light, oxygen and contaminants. Primary and secondary applications include packaging for pharmaceuticals and medical devices – closures, pouches and prefilled syringes. Sustainable packaging solutions are available.
Petri dishes, pipettes, cryogenic storage tubes, droppers and specimen analysis equipment can benefit from our range of thermoplastics that deliver low-temperature resistance, low-protein binding, clarity, rigidity and sterility.
For monitoring and imaging devices, we offer thermoplastics that provide a variety of required properties, including chemical resistance, durability, flame retardancy, impact resistance, indoor UV stability and colorability.
We offer materials that deliver colorability, sterility, strength and weight for diapers, incontinence products, surgical disposal gowns and women’s hygiene products.
Bone cement mixers, external bone fixation devices, instrument handles, trays and cases require thermoplastics that deliver biocompatibility, sterility, dimensional stability, impact, and chemical resistance and colorability.
Our thermoplastics also help to prevent failures due to environmental stress cracking and chemical attacks. These products are used in respiratory masks, ventilators, CPAP devices, nebulizers and tracheal tubes. These applications require materials that provide biocompatibility, soft touch, comfort and reliability.
As surgical devices, including trocars, retractors, speculums, forceps and electrosurgical instruments, become smaller and more complex, we offer solutions that provide strength, durability, and freedom of design for miniaturized instruments.
