Advanced polyolefins for medical equipment

The production of medical and diagnostic devices requires reliable and safe materials, profound technical expertise, and complex production processes in order to ensure high performance and compliance with stringent regulatory guidelines.

Our Bormed™ range of regulated polymers for the healthcare industry helps you to select the most suitable materials. Spanning the gamut from very stiff to very soft, our polypropylene and polyethylene materials, as well as plastomers, exhibit desirable product characteristics such as chemical and detergent resistance, very good stiffness and impact balance, low stress cracking, and pleasing aesthetics.
