If we asked you to differentiate between the good and bad polymers, would you succeed? Well, most of the people can’t tell how is former any different than the latter. That’s where brands must step in.

It is the responsibility of the brand to educate the consumers about such safety-related information.

All Polymer material manufacturers as well as brand owners must test their products before offering for sale and must ensure that it complies with the national and international safety norms.

What is

Significance of

  • Plastic – MODERN WORLD

    Annually, 600 billion pounds of plastic is consumed and is growing at 5% a year. Owing to its low cost, ease of manufacturing, versatility, and imperviousness of water, plastic is used across industries including spacecraft and household.

    Polymers which are bio-compatible and do not leach out chemicals into food and beverages are safe polymers.

  • Plastic – Medical Sector

    In medicine alone, the diversity of plastics’ uses is incredible. Prosthetics, engineered tissues, and micro-needle patches for drug delivery are all possible with polymers.

    Syringes are a good example of how plastics have benefited public health. The problem of easy breakage and the difficulty of cleaning syringes made of metal and glass – have been solved by designing a sterilizable syringe completely made of plastic.
