Use Functional Plastics
to Fight Against COVID-19
With COVID-19 pandemic, plastics become more popular than ever. The urgent need for medical products pushes us to re-examine how plastics can help in providing cost-efficient medical products in high volume during a global health crisis.
Regulus has listed out the major reasons that make functional plastics an irreplaceable ally against COVID-19:
1. Resistant to Heat & Sterilization
Plastics like polypropylene (PP) is heat-resistant and can be steam sterilized. This type of functional plastics is commonly used in making syringes and surgical masks.
2. Resistant to Chemicals & Cleaning Agents
To clean medical devices repeatedly, you might need a type of functional plastics called polyethylene (PE) as it can withstand harsh cleaning agents including ethanol.
3. Easy to Meet Medical Standards
Functional plastics can be easily made following the regulations stipulated in ISO 9001 & ISO 13485 and FDA Classes.
4. Cost-Effective & Time-Saving
With injection molding technology, products made from functional plastics are produced at comparatively lower cost and get to the market faster.
