PARSIPPANY, N.J.—Evonik Corp.'s high performance polymers business line has a new distribution agreement with Compounding Solutions L.L.C. for its Care medical grades for the North American medical device market.
The agreement covers Compounding's Vestamid Care ML polyamide 12, Vestamid Care ME polyether block amide, Trogamid Care clear polyamide and Vestakeep Care Peek medical grade polymers for the North American temporary contract medical device markets as of September, according to an Evonik news release.
The addition of Compounding Solutions was strategic, filling the need for specialty medical compounding, custom blends and distribution, said Kenneth Ross, medical group manager for Evonik's high performance polymers.
The partnership will help the medical industry as a whole with resin supplies in smaller 5-10 kilogram quantities for new projects to determine the best product fit, as well as with dedicated support from early-stage projects to full scale commercialization, said Basker Lalgudi, business development manager for Evonik's high performance polymers business line.
Evonik's medical grade polymers have applications including stockcocks, housings, imaging devices, drug delivery systems, surgical devices, dental and highly engineered catheters and balloons for percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty and stent deliveries. Evonik Care medical grade polymers meet USP Class VI requirements and ISO 10993 biocompatibility.
