Advantages of using Pebax® in medical applications

Pebax® is used in a variety of medical applications due to its :

  • Biocompatibility
    Pebax® SA MED grades comply with USP class VI.
  • Sterizability
    Pebax® can be sterilized by ethylene oxide process, steam, gamma radiation (up to 10Mrads)
  • Outstanding mechanical properties
    Pebax® offers a wide range of performances such as light weight, wide range of flexibility, outstanding physical properties and chemical resistance, and a wide range of processing.
  • Breathability
    Films extruded from breathable Pebax® are thoroughly waterproof while maintaining its permeability to moisture vapor. Because Pebax® films are non-porous, they are used as microbial barrier protection. Due to their nature, they also possess antistatic properties, which are used to prevent dust attraction.
