Porex Corporation pioneered the use of sintered porous polymer components for the healthcare industry. Today, we are the leading producer and supplier of these products. Building upon our Genuine History of Innovation, we have developed P3 Technology™, a new venting capability for ethylene oxide (EtO) sterilization in medical device packaging applications. The initial offering will be specialty porous PTFE films that are outstanding sterile barriers with high airflow. We reported ASTM F1608, the new ASTM F2638, and Gurley Hill results. Compared to flash spun high-density polyethylene, our porous PTFE materials are up to ten times better as sterile barriers and up to nine times higher in airflow. Porex P3 Technology™ can help improve the EtO sterilization efficiency and maintain the device packaging sterility after sterilization.
