NES: Industry Experts in USP Class VI Seals
As the medical device industry experiences rapid growth, there is an increasing need for high-performance seals that meet new requirements. NES has been providing USP Class VI seals for many years and is considered an industry expert in such products.
United States Pharmacopeia (USP) has established stringent standards for quality, purity, consistency, and strength through a series of rigorous tests to prove their suitability. Materials must pass systemic toxicity, intracutaneous, and implantation tests, conducted on real living tissue.
As a result, any rubber compounds certified under USP Class IV are proven to have high levels of biocompatibility, making them ideal for use in medical and pharmaceutical situations.
USP Class VI Elastomers
Class VI elastomers are highly sought after by those in the medical and pharmaceutical industries. This is because they have a wide range of uses and are the safest types of seals and components for all types of medical equipment.
Biopharmaceutical manufacturers use them for their process equipment, hospitals as components in fluid transfer and pumps, and medical specialists for direct applications, such as tissue implants and other functions.
USP Class VI Silicone
Silicones classified under the USP Class VI requirements are suitable for use in food processing as well as medical and pharmaceutical installations. The ingredients used in these compounds have a clear history of wide biocompatibility and undergo the same rigorous testing as any other Class VI rubber compound.
