medical plastics

medical plastics are ubiquitous in healthcare settings, found in the housings of light and heavy-duty medical equipment, as well as in containers that carry drugs and the devices that administer them. But advances in medical technology bring new challenges to plastics suppliers. For instance, medical device makers are increasingly seeking plastics for medical devices that must be light but also strong. Plastics suppliers are responding to these needs by taking a page from approaches they have used supplying other industries, and in some cases, coming up with new solutions altogether.
