As we move into 2021, we’re already seeing the expected rise in the need for plastic injection molding for medical devices. Plus, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for medical devices in general continues to grow. As the demand for plastic medical devices increases, so does the need for NSF Listed injection mold cleaners, rust preventatives, and greases.
Plastic on the Rise for Medical Injection Molding
Medical injection molding has an estimated growth rate of 6.5% over the next 10 years for an ever-expanding list of reasons, including unlimited design options, better regulatory compliance, and little to no manufacturing side effects. Along with sustainability and biocompatibility, plastic injection molding is likely to continue increasing for medical devices.
From all types of tubing to prosthetics and more, the versatility and ability to distribute to a global marketplace add to the benefits of the medical industry moving away from metal and toward plastic.
The Importance of NSF
Particularly with medical devices that absolutely must be clean, sterile and safe, using mold cleaners, rust preventatives, and greases listed by NSF is paramount to the plastic injection molding industry. In order to be NSF Listed, products are rigorously tested and must meet or exceed all standard requirements for certification. At Nanoplas, we have five such products that also improve run time and capacity while reducing downtime.
