OnColor HC Plus colorants for healthcare, medical device and pharmaceutical applications have been pre-certified to meet USP Class VI and ISO 10993 requirements. Now, manufacturers and designers of certain healthcare and medical device products using DOW HEALTH+ polymers can confidently incorporate brand-enhancing colors and special effects into their products, which can accelerate time to market.
“This is one more example of our commitment to delivering solutions to healthcare customers that help them overcome challenges and successfully grow their business,” said John Van Hulle, president of Global Color, Additives and Inks. “Our OnColor HC Plus solutions are recognized as a premier brand of choice in the industry, and we now have the opportunity to provide significant additional value to those customers using DOW HEALTH+ polymers.”
“DOW HEALTH+ polymers offer the performance that certain molders and OEMs in the healthcare business desire in disposal devices,” said Carlos Ruiz, global market director for Dow’s Health & Hygiene business. “PolyOne's development of USP Class VI and ISO 10993 color masterbatches based on DOW DMDA-8920 HEALTH+ High Density Polyethylene Resin increases the utility of this resin in Dow-approved healthcare and medical device products."
PolyOne’s OnColor HC Plus colorants are global formulations with biocompatibility approvals (USP Class VI, ISO 10993) in both liquid and masterbatch forms. Because PolyOne globally manufactures and produces OnColor HC Plus, customers are offered brand and regulatory consistency across their entire global footprint. This gives certain healthcare and medical device customers an opportunity to streamline their time to market, reduce regulatory compliance costs, and profitably expand their business.
