Masterbatch for medical and pharmaceutical applications

The ProVital and ProVital + range of masterbatches have been introduced by Ampacet for healthcare applications. In particular, ProVital + is specifically formulated with selected raw materials that have been pre-tested to European Pharmacopeia section 3.1 and biocompatibility according to ISO 10993 standards.

Plastics, essential in the medical market, are replacing conventional materials such as metal, ceramic and glass for their mechanical properties, processing ease, quality, cost-effectiveness, ease of sterilization and the ability to mold complex shapes. Consistency of performance, traceability and control of raw materials are crucial for manufacturers of medical devices, primary packaging or in vitro diagnostics equipment. For decades, Ampacet has been a reliable partner, adhering to stringent quality and performance criteria. By building strong long-lasting relationships, Ampacet helps create a robust and transparent supply chain.

“Our unique set of knowledge in the use of materials, gathered from multiple industries associated with the expertise of our regulatory experts, led to development of a portfolio of masterbatch solutions specifically designed for pharmaceutical and medical markets,” says Philippe Hugelé, Ampacet Strategic Business Manager Medical and Rigid Packaging. “Engineered with premium quality raw materials and produced under strict manufacturing conditions, Ampacet ProVital masterbatches help manufacturers of medical equipment and pharmaceutical primary packaging to meet high industry requirements and stringent medical regulations,” he added.
