Evoprene styrenic-based TPE compounds offer an alternative to traditional vinyl compounds for various medical applications. Evoprene G compounds have been found to be a cost-effective replacement to thermoset silicone in molding and extrusion applications. The elasticity, compression set, and easy processability of this material along with its translucency make it a viable alternative in disposable device applications.

Superkleen vinyl compounds are members of a technically advanced new generation of specialty materials formulated with a unique non-DEHP, non-phthalate plasticizer system. Superkleen is designed to perform and process like conventional molding and extrusion materials, providing similar physical properties and characteristics including resistance to radiation sterilization. Superkleen is odorless, tasteless, and biocompatible; features that make this family of compounds an ideal choice for the manufacture of infant products, medical devices, and other regulated applications. Superkleen compounds containing ATC-IV plasticizers have attained USP Class VI rating. AlphaGary's regulated compounds are manufactured in segregated areas within our US facilities with separate warehousing of raw materials and finished product.

DEHP-Free Compounds: While scientific evidence continues to indicate that DEHP is safe for primates, debates over the use of DEHP goes on. For those manufacturers caught in the middle of this issue, AlphaGary has a solution. Proven in the field and designed to the exacting standards of your medical devices, AlphaGary's DEHP-Free compounds are formulated to achieve the same physical properties and high performance characteristics as our traditional vinyl-based materials. From the economical molding (3016 series) and extrusion (2228 series) grades to our 2235L series which is specifically formulated for gamma applications, you're sure to find a DEHP-free solution. Our 2233 series, for both molding and extrusion is DIDP plasticized, available with radiation stability or low taste and odor features. And our unique Superkleen series utilizes non-toxic, citrate-based plasticizers for ultra purity in molding and extrusion applications.

Our customers rely on us to stay up-to-date with the changing trends and myriad of regulatory requirements for medical devices to ensure future compliance:
