WAYNE, Pa., May 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- A new white paper from Colorite, a Tekni-Plex company, shows how selecting

the right medical polymer compounder can help medical device manufacturers improve productivity, minimize secondary processes and reduce overall system costs.  

Aging population and economic gains in developing countries are driving medical device

manufacturers to push boundaries regarding the capabilities that their products can offer physicians and patients.

"In this era of globalization and the need to meet regulatory compliance requirements across a wide geographic footprint, working with medical polymer compounders that can assist medical device manufacturers in meeting those objectives has become more critical now than ever before," explains Ian Kenny, global managing director, Colorite, a Tekni-Plex company.

In addition to offering medical device manufacturers regulatory compliance assistance, medical polymer compounders are also called upon to help push material capability boundaries.  Unique requirements are frequently a critical component of next-generation devices, which requires a medical compounder who has the technical knowledge to provide leading-edge solutions.

"Polymers and polymer compounds play a central role in the development of a wide range of medical devices.  Therefore, it's critical to partner with a team that has knowledge across the following categories: non-invasive, invasive, non-contact, as well as short and long term contact," Kenny said.
