“Eastar 6763 has been the standard for decades in rigid medical packaging applications,” says Michael Burkardt, Eastman’s business development manager, specialty plastics. “For Eastman, it is crucial to team up with renowned partners like Exolon Group, who have the industry experience and expertise needed to deliver superior value to their customers.”
“With this collaboration and the development of Vivak® Med as an expansion of our Vivak® portfolio, we’re proving our commitment to innovation and our desire to enter new markets,” says Wim Van Eynde, head of product management at Exolon Group. “The medical packaging industry will now have access to thicker and wider sheet material than ever before. Eastman medical-grade materials offer several advantages such as reduced material usage and freedom from substances of concern compared to other materials like high-impact polystyrene. We’re very excited about the possibilities of Vivak® Med.”
