PolymaxTPE, a manufacturer of premier quality thermoplastic elastomers, announced USP Class VI approval for a new TPE material designed for use in medical and biopharmaceutical applications. MT-1205I was developed to address the increasing demand for medical TPE tubing applications. This transparent elastomer is a high-purity compound with low leachables and extractables required for ensuring patient safety. Due to the material’s flexibility, durability, neutrality, and recyclability, it is a desirable alternative to PVC and thermoset rubber for medical tubing. It also provides less gas permeability and more design flexibility than
