A line of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) compounds for medical device applications in North America comes from Colorite, a Tekni-Plex company.
Cellene™ TPE compounds are suitable for a wide variety of uses in medical devices, packaging and other regulated markets. Cellene™ compounds are formulated to be silicone-, latex-, phthalate-, halogen- and PVC-free using FDA-compliant raw materials to meet USP Class VI and ISO 10993 standards.
Changes in regulations and market conditions are prompting medical device manufacturers to look for solutions via other materials. The Cellene TPE compound line is ideal for North American medical device manufacturers looking for alternatives to PVC, phthalate-plasticized compounds and various rubber materials.
