Borealis to promote new healthcare solutions

Borealis A/S : 09 May, 2006  (New Product)
Borealis, the leading supplier of plastics solutions for healthcare applications in Europe, will demonstrate a comprehensive range of polyolefin healthcare solutions at the Central & Eastern European PHARMtech Congress 2006 taking place on February 22-23 in Poland.
The complete spectrum of healthcare products and solutions will be featured in Expo XXI Warsaw International Expocentre, Poland.

Borealis solutions that will be featured at PHARMtech include:

The Bormed family of dedicated healthcare polyolefins produced and controlled under strict conditions for injection and blow moulded medical devices and pharmaceutical packaging.Typical applications include single use syringes, needle hubs and catheters, bottles for parenteral solutions, bags and ampoules for IV sterile liquids.

Bormed polyolefins display the complete spectrum of properties and characteristics required by the healthcare market. These range from radiation resistance, transparency and chemical inertness to sterilisability at 121C and high Environmental Stress Cracking Resistance.

New Bormed SC220CF for polypropylene transparent cast and blown film. This new grade features balanced optical and softness properties for medical pouch applications for dialysis fluids, parenteral, enteral nutrition and all other forms of medical liquids.

Borsoft SD233CF and Borsoft SA233CF, a base material for transparent and translucent cast, blown film and tubing compounds or coextrusion.

Borsoft PP is characterised by softness, flexibility, tenacity, low temperature resistance and sterilization resistance, up to 121C in steam. Random heterophasic copolymers are the ideal solution for medical pouches and lamination. Compared to block copolymers, Borsoft solutions offer superior optical film and welding properties.

Unique PP monomaterial blister and lidding solutions as a substitute for multi-material and conventional polymeric materials. The major benefits of this monomaterial solution for blister packaging are the superior water vapour barrier, consumer-friendly easy-to-open (push- through) properties and an excellent ecological and economical profile.

According to Anton Wolfsberger, Marketing Manager for Borealis Film & Fibre, 'Polyolefins are increasingly becoming the preferred material for healthcare applications due to a smart balance of properties and sound ecological and economical performance. Our solutions also include long-term supply guarantees (without recipe changes), the highest levels of quality consistency, on-line inspection and joint application development. We are really looking forward to sharing our innovative product range with a dynamic Central and Eastern European market.'
