Impact of COVID-19 on Specialty Elastomer for Pharmaceuticals Market : Implications on Business

Specialty Elastomer for Pharmaceuticals Market

Specialty Elastomer for Pharmaceuticals Market: Overview

  • Specialty elastomers are polymers with high elasticity as well as viscosity. They offer low permeability to moisture and gas; as well as high temperature resistance.
  • Specialty elastomers help meet the changing requirements for drug compatibility and cleanliness in the healthcare industry. They offer several beneficial properties. For instance, they possess low extractability and leachability. Specialty elastomers are super-clean solutions for sensitive drugs and various other pharmaceutical applications such as pharmaceutical stoppers and container closures.
  • Products manufactured from specialty polymer materials need to be non-toxic and suitable for selected medical devices. They need to be tested and certified to according to the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) Class VI.
