SABIC reinforces portfolio of thermoplastics for healthcare

January 31/2012

(plastech) -- Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) will be at Pharmapack Europe (Paris, February 15-16), the annual European Healthcare event, with a wide range of polyolefins and engineering thermoplastics developed specifically for the global healthcare industry. The company plans to reinforce its position as a "one-stop shop" for high quality-thermoplastics, with a growing portfolio compliant with the strict regulations of this industry.

SABIC has numerous options to meet these challenges, including grades based on ABS, polycarbonate, thermoplastic polyesters (PET and PBT), polyphenylene oxide and siloxanes, as well as high and low density polyethylenes and polypropylene. The company has cost-effective solutions for syringes, injection pens, inhalers and other related products.

In target applications such as drug delivery device internal components and external housings, typical industry requirements range across biocompatibility, sterilizability, chemical resistance, impact resistance, wear resistance and anti-static properties, through ease of processing and aesthetics, to constancy in product formulations.

To emphasize this point, SABIC is using Pharmapack as a launchpad for new grades, including a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) resin featuring high flow properties that can significantly reduce injection moulding cycle times for various healthcare products. With a melt flow rate of 30 g/10 min, SABIC HDPE PCG300054 provides important processing advantages that yield lower system costs for healthcare product manufacturers.
