PolyOne delivers a clear advantage for medical devices with new transparent OnColor HC Plus.

PolyOne Corporation, a premier global provider of specialized polymer materials, services and solutions, today announced a new transparent addition to its USP Class VI-certified OnColor HC Plus color concentrates for medical devices.

Transparent OnColor HC Plus color concentrates for medical-grade Eastman Tritan™ copolyesters have recently been certified to meet the USP Class VI testing protocol. These new masterbatch colorants complement existing certified colors for opaque resins. Moreover, transparent color formulations for polycarbonate, ABS, polyester, and liquid colorants are currently undergoing USP Class VI testing, with certifications expected in Q1 2012.

All OnColor HC Plus color concentrates for healthcare products, pharmaceutical and medical devices are certified to meet USP Class VI protocol testing. By selecting these advanced colorant solutions for healthcare products, customers can reduce product development times and increase speed to market.

This globally available palette of standard and custom colors meets or exceeds ISO 10993 and USP Class VI requirements. Because PolyOne manufactures and produces OnColor HC Plus globally, customers can more efficiently design products, maintain regulatory consistency and protect brand integrity across their entire global footprint. This enables healthcare customers to streamline their time to market, reduce regulatory compliance cost and profitably expand their business.
