Trusted Color & Performance POLYMERS for Healthcare in Japan


Now in Japan

For the first time, Swiss headquartered, Clariant Plastics & Coatings will be exhibiting at the MedTec Japan 18th to 20th March at Tokyo Big Sight Stand 801 Swiss Pavilion.

For almost 10 years following its launch, MEVOPUR color and performance polymer compounds and masterbatch concentrates have been helping the medical device and pharmaceutical packaging industry reduce risk associated with plastics. Manufactured in a global network of three sites EN-ISO13485- 2016 certified by Swiss Quality Systems, and supported by robust regulatory documentation based on testing of the ingredients to ISO10993, USP 87, 88 Class VI, and more recently EP3.1, USP661.1 and ICHQ3D, MEVOPUR sets the benchmark for the industry.
