Medical Plastics, A New Rising Star of the Global Economy?
Publish Date: 2020/04/10
The outbreak of the COVID-19 has brought unprecedented impact on the global economy, yet there is a rising demand for healthcare products. How materials and machinery manufacturers reacting to seize the opportunities are arose?

Antibacterial new materials will dominate the new market

Anti-epidemic and antibacterial new materials are new functional material with bactericidal and bacteriostatic properties. With the pandemic development around the world, people are more and more concerned about microorganisms that endanger human health; this concern promotes the application of anti-epidemic and antibacterial new materials in an increasingly wide range of fields.

Microban technologies are built into medical products at the point of manufacture to inhibit the growth of harmful organisms that are present in healthcare environments. In lab studies, Microban's customized antimicrobial technologies for healthcare equipment reduced 99% of the bacteria. With this innovative solution, medical plastic products can be kept cleaner during their service life, thus improving the sustainability of products and minimizing plastic pollution. Microban portfolio of active technologies is uniquely suited for incorporation into a number of products used in the healthcare environment, such as Mobile Carts, Surgical Drape, Hospital Beds, Medical Tools, Healthcare Textiles, Dental Trays, etc.

3D printing will become the breakthrough after the epidemic

In the fight against COVID-19, the shortage of anti-epidemic products is undoubtedly an opportunity to test whether 3D printing technology suppliers can achieve mass production by improving production efficiency and reducing production cost.

An Italian 3D printing startup designed and printed 100 life-saving respirator valves in a day for a hospital, which had 250 coronavirus patients in intensive care, in Brescia. Cristian Fracassi, Founder CEO of the 3D printing startup Isinnova, brought a 3D printer directly to the hospital, redesigned and then produced the missing piece shortly. More valves were later printed by another local 3D printing firm, Lonati SpA, using a polymer laser powder bed fusion process and a custom polyamide-based material.

Mask materials and production equipment will become a global focus

With the development of the covid-19 epidemic, global demand for masks is on the rise. As the core material of protective masks, PP melting blow non-woven fabric has gained wide attention. Nanjing Keya specially designs and manufactures a special twin screw extruder for producing PP melting blow non-woven fabric materials. The screw speed is up to 900rpm, and the single line can meet the daily production demand of about 20t. At present, Keya has delivered several production lines urgently. Keya can also provide customers with a whole intelligent production line from unpacking and feeding to automatic packaging, helping them improve the production capacity of anti-epidemic masks and protective clothing.

Medical Plastics Connect will serve as a quality technology exchange platform

CHINAPLAS 2020 will release innovative technologies and applications of medical plastics together with a number of exhibitors and institutes in the form of "Forum + Pop-up Kiosk". In-depth analysis by professionals and product display will help visitors from medical sector source the new solutions in fighting against the epidemic effectively. CHINAPLAS 2020 Medical Plastics Connect will cover hot topics such as anti-epidemic and antibacterial new materials, medical packaging, precision injection, high-performance materials, 3D printing, medical wearables, orthopedic implants, biocompatible materials, etc.
