Both healthcare and life sciences applications, ranging from drug delivery devices, wellness and wearable devices, to single-use containers for biopharmaceutical manufacturing, all have one thing in common. They must be tough and durable and able to withstand everyday use while maintaining their structural integrity.


To meet these challenges, Covestro has lately developed Makrolon 3638 polycarbonate. It features durability from cryogenic to steam sterilization conditions with high impact strength and ductility, and high chemical resistance to everyday chemicals.


Covestro launches Makrolon 3638 polycarbonate to meet rigorous standards in healthcare and life sciences applications.

Other advantages include:


  • Limited medical grade with biocompatibility testing according to USP Class I, ISO 10993-5 and ISO 10993-10 and meets the requirements for skin contact applications

  • Food contact quality

  • Ability to be sterilized using methods most prevalent in the healthcare industry

  • Design freedom for applications that are tough and transparent, yet attractive

  • Consistent and efficient processing for both injection and blow molding methods


"Every day, the healthcare and life sciences industries are hard at work delivering new life-enhancing and life-saving devices and therapies. We recognized the opportunity to meet a need by offering a tailored material with the property profile desired for these rigorous applications," said Emily Shaffer, Americas healthcare marketing manager, Engineering Plastics, Covestro LLC.


Shaffer pointed out that by harnessing its global resources, Covestro is able to provide its medical-grade polycarbonates wherever they are needed all over the world.


She also introduced that this material can enable circular business models by supporting closed- and open-loop recycling. It can contribute to a lower carbon footprint with the possibility for attributed bio-circular content.
