The company will be discussing its well-known polyvinyl chloride (PVC) compound solutions, as well as its Cellene® line of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) compounds.

TPE/PVC for Phthalate-free Patient Environments

Ian Kenny, global managing director, Colorite, said:
“Many companies are trying to proactively address new regulatory dynamics, both in the United States and in many other global regions. While our PVC compound solutions will continue to be the product of choice for most applications around the world, some healthcare systems are already implementing strategic initiatives for phthalate-free patient environments. For those applications, our non-phthalate PVC compounds or our Cellene compounds are ideal. IV therapy producers have been among the first conversions in North America.”

Cellene® TPE

  • Cellene TPEs are suitable for a wide variety of uses in medical devices, packaging and other regulated markets. 
  • Cellene compounds are formulated to be silicone, latex, phthalate, halogen and PVC-free using FDA-compliant raw materials to meet USP Class VI and ISO 10993 standards.

PVC Compounds for Medical Devices

Colorite also is known as one among global leaders in clear PVC compounds for medical devices.
  • It offers an extensive line of custom compound solutions suitable for extrusion, injection and blow molding processes. 
  • Colorite compounds are available with excellent gamma radiation resistance, as well as self-frosting and radiopaque materials.
