Plastics Are Clearly Safe, Tough, and Chemically Resistant

Analee Zelaya

Eastman Chemical Co. (Kingsport, TN) has launched a Web site that is dedicated to plastics solutions for the medical device industry. It features case studies to demonstrate the clarity, toughness, chemical resistance, and safety of the company’s specialty plastics when used in medical devices such as syringes and blood recovery systems.

The site demonstrates the versatility that the firm’s plastics bring to project engineers, whether it is in molding complex shapes or retaining clarity after sterilization, notes Thijs Jaarsma, Eastman’s global market development manager. Eastman also manufactures chemicals and fibers worldwide.
