From medical tubes, syringes, to blood bags and disposables, the healthcare sector is heavily dependent on safe and reliable plastic solutions. As a producer of pharmaceutical materials including Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API), we deeply understand the needs of the industry. This resulted in development of products uniquely equipped to allow the medical industry to meet stringent requirements.
Supporting the safe and secure production of medical devices
Enabling plastic producers to meet the most stringent migration requirements
Compatible with medical laboratory testing procedures
Plastics used in healthcare settings must be reliable, consistent and safe. Kisuma’s additives are trusted for these applications because of our unparalleled expertise, quality and consistency. The addition of DHT™-4 stabilizers to plastics is an ideal way to increase performance and functionality. DHT™-4 is non-migratory, so customers are assured that negative effects on medication and testing procedures are mitigated, and that the end product is fully compliant to regulatory requirements such as EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR).
At Kisuma, we are always watchful of current trends and anticipating what might be around the corner. In the medical plastics space, we expect to see changes in legislation that could prompt a change in traditional PVC stabilizers towards calcium zinc based systems, typically used in applications such as PVC blood bags and medical tubes. Here, ALCAMIZER™ 1 would be a necessary addition to the stabilizer mix to meet the new standards and maintain the clarity of the final product. ALCAMIZER™ 1 also improves thermal stability during process and in the finished product.
The composition of plastic medical tubes looks likely to change, with a shift to calcium zinc based stabilizer systems expected. Therefore, ALCAMIZER™ 1 is an essential additive in PVC stabilizer packages.
Hospitals and medical centers rely on a huge array of disposable goods, including blister packaging. Kisuma stabilizers are found in many of the plastics used to make and package these products.
