Dow Medical Grade Plastic Portfolio

Looking for the right plastic for your next medical project? Then consider the broad offering of medical resins from DOW. They have products for all of your application needs including tubing, film, caps & closures, ampoules, vials, testing & diagnostics and more.

Dow Chemical has one of the broadest polyolefin product portfolios for use in the medical, healthcare, and pharmaceutical markets. Products include polyolefin plastomers, polyolefin elastomers, olefinic block copolymers, LDPE, LLDPE, HDPE, and bimodal HDPE. Polyolefin plastomers and elastomers bring clarity, gloss and flexibility. Olefinic block copolymers bring flexibility and toughness with improved abrasion resistance. LDPE products bring flexibility, chemical resistance and high purity while LLDPE adds excellent puncture and tear resistance and consistent film seal performance. HDPE brings high strength and stiffness and environmental stress crack resistance.

These products come with USP Class VI, USP 10993 and/or USP 661.1 regulatory compliance and come with a 6-month or 12-month notification of change. These resins can be processed by most of the common processing methods including injection molding, blown film, cast film, extrusion coating, profile extrusion, blow molding, injection blow molding, compression molding, compression blow forming, and blow-fill-seal.

Because of the range of polyethylene types available, a wide range of properties and performance are available from soft and flexible, to rigid and hard and everything in between. The Dow Health+ polymers are designed to meet the most stringent requirements of medical and healthcare applications.
