INNOVATIVE USES OF ETHYLENE VINYL ACETATE POLYMERS FOR ADVANCING HEALTHCARE

Jose Reyes, global strategic market manager, presented INNOVATIVE USES OF ETHYLENE VINYL ACETATE POLYMERS FOR ADVANCING HEALTHCARE at the Plastics in Medical Devices 2014 convention in Cleveland on May 7. You can read the corresponding whitepaper now. This paper details the decades-long history of ethylene vinyl acetate polymers (EVA) in medical packaging, medical devices, and pharmaceutical applications.

In the introduction to EVA section, learn the molecular structure and the correlation of vinyl acetate percentage to melt index and properties such as flexibility.

In the case studies, you will learn:

  • how EVA was found to be an excellent solution for TPN bags.
  • how EVAs are used in cryo containers for stem cell storage.
  • how EVA polymers are used as controlled-release APIs.
  • why EVA does not require curing such as a raw material like silicone.
