Clariant MEVOPUR masterbatches and compounds for medical and pharmaceutical applications.
Clariant MEVOPUR masterbatches and compounds for medical and pharmaceutical applications.

At Medtec China 2017, Clariant will be announcing a new compounding line at its existing facility in Singapore to meet the growing demand for pre-colored medical plastic compounds.

Already installed at the ISO 13485 certified site is a new compounding extruder line capable of producing 1-5 metric tons compound batches or higher at a fast rate.

"By the time our newly added compounding line goes on-stream in Singapore, Clariant will be able to supply pre-colored compound materials that address the particular needs of the healthcare industry in the Asia Pacific region. Medical processors can take advantage of our ready-to-use compounds that bring ease of handling, as well as controlled, consistent and compliant materials," said Steve Duckworth, Head of Global Segment Medical and Pharmaceutical for Clariant.

Rapid economic growth and overall improvement of living standards across Asia in the past decade has fueled robust growth in the healthcare industry. In addition, Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow rapidly on account of rising pharmaceutical manufacturing in China and India.

Its new capability in Asia will be able to handle an increasing demand for ready-to-use compounds from local and regional customers, who are generating high demand for small- and medium-sized lots in the medical and pharmaceutical packaging markets, according to the company.

The Singapore plant is one of three Clariant sites worldwide designed to produce materials used in medical device and pharmaceutical packaging. The other two facilities are located in Malmo, Sweden and Maine, the US. All are certified to EN:ISO 13485 (2012).

Clariant will also highlight MEVOPUR healthcare polymers solutions at the show. It has expanded the portfolio with a number of new product developments and enhancements that address the particular needs of the healthcare industry.

While available as masterbatch concentrates, MEVOPUR also provides ready-to-use color and additive compounds used at 100%, requiring no further dilution. As the compound is designed to the correct color target from the beginning, there is no need to adjust the feeding rate of a concentrate to achieve the proper color, thus start-up scrap and time is reduced significantly.

Other advantages of the MEVOPUR compound series include reduced problems with melt-distribution due to the compatibility of the concentrate with the diluting polymer and fewer process parameters to consider when dealing with more difficult polymer resins, such as engineering and high temperature polymers.

Meanwhile, during the development and launch of a new healthcare product, using MEVOPUR compound means that fewer variables and suppliers are needed, saving time and mental bandwidth, added Clariant.

Medtec China 2017 will be held from September 20-22 in Shanghai, China.
