When healthcare professionals use plastic-based materials in patient care, they expect them to provide safety and proven performance. That means they must deliver the high clarity, durability, strength, and chemical resistance expectations set and, if possible, be better for the environment. It’s a tall order for many manufacturers, but our healthcare standard-setting technology ensures these benefits.
Collaboration is key.
It’s not just the superior toughness, chemical resistance, impact strength, and color stability of our products that sets Eastman apart. It’s also the effort we put into collaborating with our customers and partners to match them with the best possible materials for their projects.
We understand that choosing the right polymer is as much about protecting the patient as it is about device performance. That’s why our experts work closely with our customers and offer support for their projects from the laboratory through market development and beyond.
Because our customers are working hard to make medical products that are better for the environment, we are continually developing insights and technology that help them reach those goals. We offer sustainable manufacturing methods and materials as well as wide-ranging capabilities such as on-site technical support, postmolding testing, and downstream handling advice.
