Medical Grade

Medical Grade


Plastics play an essential role in the life sciences and healthcare industries due to their ability to meet various demands of these sectors. Orthopedic manufacturers, for example, depend on medical grade plastics for their safety, compliance and reliability. Polymers such as polyphenylsulfone, heat stabilized polypropylene and polyetheretherketone are used in medical devices and surgical instruments intended for repeated use.

Other polymers like ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene are used in long term human implants. Plastics also offer design flexibility, allowing for the production of highly customized products with intricate details. In addition, medical grade plastics provide excellent traceability for components and devices, an important factor for companies in the healthcare industry. Plastics also deliver durability and reliability, making them ideal for medical and life science applications, including autoclave sterilization for repeated use. From replacing heavier metal devices and instruments, to increasing functional performance, plastics are the material of choice for countless healthcare products. With the vast array of benefits that plastics provide, it's no wonder they are becoming increasingly popular in the life sciences and healthcare industries.
