Bormed™ HD810MO is a polypropylene homopolymer intended for evaluation for use in Healthcare applications. This nucleated grade with a medium melt flow rate is specially formulated for production of articles which need to be sterilised with radiation (gamma and beta radiation). Tests on specimen radiated at 25 kGy have shown stability for 5 years when stored at room temperature. Material can also well be sterilised with ethylene oxide or steam. Borealis prohibits the use of any grade product in an implantable device that is introduced into the human body by surgical intervention and that is intended to remain in place following the surgical procedure, e.g. stents, pacemakers. A filled-in Risk Assessment Form and its corresponding approval by Borealis is needed for material sampling and for every Healthcare application.
