Clariant launches medical polymer compounds resistant to hydrolytic degradation

Clariant launches medical polymer compounds resistant to hydrolytic degradation.
(Photo: Clariant)Working with a leading medical device manufacturer, Clariant Plastics & Coatings Healthcare Polymer Solutions has completed development and testing of new polymer materials specially formulated to resist degradation caused by exposure to high humidity and temperature. The new technology is especially important in resins that incorporate high loadings of radiopaque metals because these fillers are known to exacerbate the degradation effect.

Clariant’s MEVOPUR® ProTect O2 scavenger
helps extend shelf life of pharma packaging

MEVOPUR ProTect offers long-term oxygen protection in PET pharmaceutical bottles. (Photo: Clariant)Clariant Plastics & Coatings Healthcare Polymer Solutions is adding a new oxygen-scavenging additive masterbatch to its MEVOPUR line of medical-grade materials and services for pharmaceutical packaging and medical devices. MEVOPUR ProTect is effective at limiting oxygen (O2) degradation of drugs and neutraceuticals stored in polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles, even in a transparent mono-layer construction.

Clariant highlights sustainable healthcare products and services at trade fairs

Clariant Highlights Sustainable Healthcare Products and Services at EcoCircle Center of Excellence Mechanical Recycling. (Photo: Clariant)Sustainability can be expected to be a popular topic of conversation at two major healthcare tradeshows in early 2020 and the Clariant Healthcare Polymer Solutions team will be there with practical options that can be evaluated today. At both Pharmapack Europe (February 5 – 6 in Paris) and MD&M West (February 11 - 13, in Anaheim, CA), Clariant experts will be talking about the scope of the plastic waste problem, how the healthcare industry can confront the challenge, and the ways Clariant is helping its customers be more environmentally responsible while remaining compliant and commercially successful.
