Thermoplastics in Biochemical and Pharmaceuticals

This year has put health and healthcare industries front and center as we fight the COVID-19 virus around the world. Plastifab is honoured to play a role in this fight by providing the raw materials used in the biochemical and pharmaceutical industries.

The biochemical industry has been working relentlessly to research and develop drugs and vaccines to help protect us from COVID-19 and other viruses and diseases around the world. Plastics play a huge role in this work.

Part of creating new medications and vaccines includes pressurizing and vaporizing pharmaceutical mixtures and thermoplastics are used in this equipment. Thermoplastics are also commonly used for applications used in purification and cell profusion.

We’re commonly asked to provide HDPE, PP Copolymer, Polycarbonate, Acetal, and DelrinTM for medical applications.Why are these thermoplastics so popular in vaccine development? They

  • are FDA approved,
  • are chemical resistant,
  • are lightweight,
  • come in a variety of colors, and
  • are USP Class VI approved

If your business is in the biochemical and pharmaceutical industries and you’re looking for parts for your equipment, contact our team at Plastifab who can help pick the right plastic material for your application.

We also want to take this time to wish everyone the best for the holiday season and the new year. We thank you for your patronage this past year and are excited to work with you in the coming years to help you design success in thermoplastics.
