Healthcare

Polymer materials for use in medical-technological and healthcare applications need to fulfill a great number of requirements and approval processes. Some of the standards that our materials fulfill are FDA, USP class VI, and ISO 10993/EN 30993. Several of our suppliers have very extensive portfolios of materials which are specifically designed for this sector, and which meet the stringent requirements posed in this industry. When choosing a material for use in a medical-technological application, the safety of both the patient and healthcare professional is of the utmost importance. The application area of the product decides the choice of material.

Through our broad knowledge and experience and our suppliers’ extensive ranges of materials and expertise, we are able to recommend the most optimal materials for effective manufacturing and a successful end product. Our materials can be found in medical-technological equipment and packaging, among other applications. They are approved for contact with pharmaceuticals, human skin, and bodily fluids. Another common requirement that is posed on materials is that they can be sterilized without being damaged, are resistant to chemicals, and are flame-retardant.

We are happy to assist you in finding the right material for your product or production process, and that fulfills your specific needs. Feel free to contact us via our Tech Center so that we can assist you with our specialist knowledge.
