Meets ISO 10993 and/or USP Class VI biocompatibility requirement.
Ecdel™ elastomers are plasticizer free copolyester elastomers (COPE) that offer clarity, toughness, flexibility, and chemical resistance for flexible packaging including medical and pharmaceutical applications. Ecdel™ elastomer 9967 may be processed on standard injection molding, extrusion blow molding, profile extrusion, extrusion coating, or film extrusion equipment. Ecdel™ elastomers may be extrusion blow molded directly into bags or extruded into blown or cast film for later fabrication into bags. Ecdel™ elastomers are radiation, electron beam, ethylene oxide, and autoclave sterilization stable. 9967's high inherent viscosity may be helpful where good melt strength is required (blown film or profile extrusion).
This product has been CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIEDTM Bronze, with Material Health Certificate, Platinum.
The CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIED mark is a registered certification mark used under license through the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute, a nonprofit organization that administers the publicly available Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM Product Standard which provides designers and manufacturers with criteria and requirements for continually improving product materials and manufacturing processes. The Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM Product Standard guides designers and manufacturers through a continual improvement process that looks at a product through five quality categories—material health, material reutilization, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship, and social fairness. A product receives an achievement level in each category—Basic, Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum—with the lowest achievement level representing the product’s overall mark.
The Material Health Certificate provides manufacturers with a trusted way to communicate their efforts to identify and replace chemicals of concern in their products.
