It also provides full traceability of processes and products, and production management based on GMP principle. Polyplastics also provides uniform quality and global supply.

Polyplastics offers medical device manufacturers extensive data on the long- term reliability of its materials. Customized data on extraction, moldability, durability, slip and wear, and other key attributes is also available.

TOPAS COC is a glass-clear and highly pure plastic which offers stiffness and barrier resistance, biocompatibility, and drug compatibility for wearables, drug delivery, medical devices, pharmaceutical blisters and trays, and diagnostics and microfluidics.
