Gamma Sterilizable Containers
The Gamma Sterilizable material used at LA Container is a USP Class VI, highly clarified random copolymer resin designed specifically for the manufacturing of medical devices suitable for sterilization by high-energy radiation. In addition to being radiation sterilizable, containers made with this material are E-beam sterilizable and Ethylene Oxide sterilizable. This sturdy polypropylene material has controlled rheology to maintain its structure long-term. Radiation resistant polypropylene is compliant with many industry and medical standards including RoHS restrictions on the inclusion of heavy metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and hexavalent chromium. This material is REACH compliant and also does not contain flame-retardants like PBB, PBDE, or benzofurans. PP-Gamma material is also compliant with FDA regulation 21 CFR 177.1520, making it safe for use with food products. No animal products are used to create this polymer.
