PAWTUCKET, RI, U.S.A,, September 19, 2007: A new publication outlines the broad range of PVC compounds available from Teknor Apex and its global subsidiaries for medical and other regulated applications, the company announced today.
The colorful six-page brochure cites the 30-year specialization of Teknor Apex in PVC compounds for medical, potable-water, and food-contact uses. Accompanying the brochure is a representative list of the company's wide range of flexible and elastomeric PVC compounds for these applications.
The publication also highlights Teknor Apex's capabilities for meeting stringent industry requirements:
o Uniform products worldwide. Medical-grade compounding lines in the U.S.A., Singapore, and (soon) China use the same raw materials and processes, enabling globalized customers to obtain precisely the same compound grades no matter where in the world they operate their plants.

The company also makes use of non-DEHP, non-phthalate, non-migratory, lipid-resistant, citrate-based, and many other standard and specialty plasticizers, along with colorants for the entire range of thermoplastics.
o Stringent quality assurance. Teknor Apex produces medical compounds exclusively in dedicated, high-purity facilities, maintains complete traceability of raw materials and production records, and makes changes in raw materials, formulations, and production lines only upon written permission from the customer.
o Assistance with regulatory compliance. The regulatory staff at Teknor Apex works closely with standards agencies and can provide letters of compliance with all relevant requirements worldwide.
