INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, will present new product highlights and a range of new applications for the healthcare industry at Pharmapack 2017 in Paris (Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles).

The focus of INEOS Styrolution’s booth at this year’s Pharmapack will be on providing complete solutions – suitable styrenic materials, compliance testing, full service HD package – for medical device manufacturers.

Alexander Silvestre, Global Director - Healthcare, is particularly excited about the company’s exhibits at this year’s Pharmapack: “I encourage customers to stop by at our booth. We will present several new solutions for the healthcare industry for the very first time. They will enable medical device manufacturers to develop new applications based on very robust regulatory compliant styrenic materials.”

Styrenic materials for the healthcare industry

INEOS Styrolution’s Novodur® HD ABS is the material of choice for many healthcare applications. Its good chemical resistance, flowability, surface appearance and suitability for common sterilization methods (such as gamma-radiation, E-beam, NO2, or EtO sterilization) make Novodur® an attractive material for many leading medical device manufacturers.

Due to properties like outstanding transparency and impact resistance, INEOS Styrolution’s Styrolux® SBC is the perfect fit for a wide range of healthcare applications from filter housings to drip chambers, lab-ware and drainage containers.

Regulatory compliancy

INEOS Styrolution ensures regulatory compliancy on multiple levels for styrenics positioned for the healthcare industry. Depending on the grade, exaples of these compliance documents include: FDA and EU food contact statements, Pharmacopoeia and biocompatibility tests, USP Class Biological Reactivity Tests Class VI (US), 7th Edition, Chap. 3.2.2. “Plastics Containers and Closures” (EU) and 16th Edition “G7. Plastic Containers for Pharmaceutical Products” (JP).
