Cooley Specialty Products has debuted a polyolefin-based compound designed to replace PVC in medical membranes such as blood bags, tubing and curtains.
The Pawtucket, R.I., firm said its Cooley MedGuard is flexible, it can be incinerated and it is weldable by ultrasonic, hot air, radio-frequency and other methods. Cooley claims the new material performs as well as PVC-based products in medical flexibles and is less costly and easy to dispose.
