Value Plastics makes animal-free polypropylene a standard USP Class VI offering, and expands press-in plug line

Value Plastics will include a certified USP Class VI polypropylene as one of its core resin offerings. Any part that’s currently offered in the company's standard polypropylene (parts ending in -6) will now also be offered in the Flinthills P5M6K-080 resin (-6005) that provides the USP Class VI and animal-free certification desired by medical and biopharm companies.

A key contributor to this change is the medical and biopharmaceutical industries' growing demand for animal-free resins due to the presence of BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy or mad cow disease).
