has an established record for product safety and effectiveness in
medical devices. Over the years, medical product manufacturers have
come to rely on Bayer to provide technically advanced materials
that can help meet the critical design, manufacturing and end-use
performance parameters of a variety of medical device and packaging
applications. This includes polycarbonates (PC), polycarbonate blends
(PC/ABS) and thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU).
Some Bayer thermoplastic
resins meet biocompatibility compliance (FDA-modified ISO 10993-1
tests). In addition, FDA and drug master files are maintained for
Bayer medical products. To learn more about these resins, use the

Additionally, Bayer polyurethane
reaction injection molding (RIM) systems have been used for
many years to economically produce the housings of laboratory and
medical equipment in smaller volumes that cannot be molded economically
Bayer plastics can be
found in a wide variety of medical applications including dialysis
systems, cardiovascular devices, intravenous components, drug delivery
systems, surgical devices, syringes, equipment housings, diagnostic
supplies, tubing, catheters and blood cell separation devices.
