This reference guide brings together a wide range of essential data on the sterilization of plastics and elastomers, enabling engineers to make optimal material choices and design decisions. The data tables in this book enable engineers and scientists to select the right materials, and right sterilization method for a given product or application. The resulting Handbook is an essential reference for Plastics Engineers, Materials Scientists and Chemists working in contexts where sterilization is required, such as food packaging, pharmaceutical packaging and medical devices. The effects of sterilization methods on plastics and elastomers: the definitive user's guide and databook Liesl K. Massey This extensively updated second edition was created for medical device, medical packaging, and food packaging design engineers, material product technical support, and research/development personnel. TECHNICAL WHITEPAPER Sterilization of Plastics Introduction The rising use of plastics in medical devices means that the capability of being sterilized is rapidly becoming a key selection criterion for any plastic to be used in a medical device. The objective of sterilization is to prevent the introduction into the body of pathogenic organisms.

Plastics Sterilization Compatibility Steam Sterilization, also known as autoclaving, involves generating or injecting saturated steam into a pressure chamber at a temperature range of °C ( °F) at 15psi for a period of time sufficient to provide sterilization. STERILIZATION EFFECTS ON POLYPROPYLENE: TECHNOLOGY AND POLYMER TYPE EFFECTS Markus Gahleitner, Johannes Wolfschwenger and Joachim Fiebig Borealis GmbH, St. Peterstr. 25, A Linz, Austria Karl Dobianer and Christa Hametner OFI – Institute for Medical Products, Franz-Grillstr. 5, A Vienna, Austria Abstract.

Sterilization – A to z. Sterilization is a critical process in the. pharmaceutical industry for the control of. microbial populationsmicrobial populations. While most prevalent in the manufacture of. sterile products it can be used in a variety. of settings where microbes have potential. impact on patients or products. The resulting Handbook is an essential reference for Plastics Engineers, Materials Scientists and Chemists working in contexts where sterilization is required, such as food packaging.   Heat-sealed, plastic peel-down pouches and wrapped packs sealed in 3-mil (3/ inch) polyethylene overwrap have been reported to be sterile for as long as 9 months after sterilization. The 3-mil polyethylene is applied after sterilization to extend the shelf life for infrequently used items Supplies wrapped in double-thickness muslin.   This extensively updated second edition was created for medical device, medical packaging, and food packaging design engineers, material product technical support, and research/development personnel. This comprehensive databook contains important characteristics and properties data on the effects of sterilization methods on plastics and :
