Thermoplastic Color Development, Control, and Change Management for Medical Devices

[cover shot]

Plastic components in medical devices may require additional scrutiny beyond the ability of a material's performance characteristics to meet an application's requirements.

For the healthcare market issues such as biologic compatibility, drug interaction, and brand identification are routinely considered as part of a material's selection criteria.

In this white paper RTP Company's Global Healthcare Market Manager Josh Blackmore and Color and Additive Marketing Specialist Mike Chappell review all the additional requirements that need to be considered when colored plastics are used in medical devices.

Topics discussed include:

  • Establishing criteria for specifying color
  • Regulations applicable to plastics and color
  • Selection and testing of materials and colorants for compliance
  • Color control and change management issues
