Polymers from LyondellBasell are selected by converters and end users for use in pharmaceutical packaging and medical devices.
Pharmaceutical packaging is used to carry a medicine from its production to the end user, normally the patient. In addition, it may also support the delivery of the medicine. A medical device is an instrument, apparatus, implant, in vitro reagent, or similar article that is used to diagnose, prevent, or treat diseases or other conditions, and does not achieve its purposes through interaction with the metabolism of the body.
Customers can select from a broad variety of Purell LDPE, HDPE and PP. Materials from LyondellBasell are also used in numerous products that protect medical workers from infection, and ensure the safety of medicine. Our customers use ethylene oxide produced by LyondellBasell to make polyethylene glycol (PEG).
