Ideal Reference for Those Involved in Making Medical Devices from Plasticised PVC

iSmithers Rapra Publishing has announced the release of Update on Medical Plasticised PVC.

Poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) is the most versatile of all the commodity polymers. It can satisfy a wide range of product function, safety, performance, and cost criteria. It is therefore ideal for use in medical applications.

Written by Dr. Xiaobin Zhao, this book reflects on the history of plasticised PVC in medical applications and discusses the manufacturing and processing of plasticised PVC together with its properties. The selection of plasticisers is a particular focus, and the blood compatibility of plasticised PVC is also examined.

The regulatory requirements and environmental concerns over the leaching of plasticisers and the generating of dioxins during the incineration of used PVC-P medical products are discussed in detail.

Update on Medical Plasticised PVC is an essential resource for those who manufacture products using plasticised PVC, and to those who work with the products and need to know about using PVC in medical applications.
