PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) is produced by polymerization of Vinyl Chloride Monomer. In order to produce commercial grades of the polymer – which meet various specification requirements – it is compounded with other additives using extrusion and mixing techniques. Depending on the additives used, properties such as flexibility, clarity, color, heat stability, density and chemical resistance can be controlled and modified. This compound can be produced in granular or powder form. PVC has been used across all industries, including medical, for the last 50 years. It is one of the most widely researched and used thermoplastic materials today. Historically, PVC has been used as a replacement material for rubbers and glass components. Other uses have developed rapidly due to its ability to optimize performance and safety requirements at a low cost. PVC is characterized by a high degree of biocompatibility, transparency – where needed – and flexibility
under changing temperatures and humidities. PVC is easily sterilized to meet a number of industry and medical standards. It also has excellent water and chemical resistance. Phthalate free and DEHP FREE to meet stringent European REACH standards.
