Wide Range of Packaging for Medical Devices

Plastech has been a trusted choice for medical device, pharmaceutical, and specialised sterile packaging manufacturers and suppliers across the UK and Europe for decades.

Since our inception, we have perfected the art of producing high-performance sterile packaging for medical components and single use medical devices such as catheters and needles. Our protective packaging ranges from pouches and containers for orthopaedic implants to surgical presentation trays and plastic tube medical packaging.

We also manufacture Medical Tubes, Medical Burettes & Plastic Medical Components.

IV Catheter Packaging

Available in based clean tube packs with caps that integrate Tyvek medical grade paper and thermoformed plastic or rigid, impact-resistant PETG thermoformed trays, our intravenous catheter packaging offers superior protection against contamination and damage before use.

Thoracic & Trocar Catheter Packaging

Our thick-walled PETG or PVC catheter tubes are easy to use and provide the sterile barrier and protection needed to keep thoracic and trocar catheters free from contaminants and damage during transportation and storage.

Surgical Instrument Packaging

Plastech’s packaging for surgical instruments includes plastic and medical grade paper trays. These offer greater resistance against tearing and an effective SBS (Sterile Barrier System) that protects the contents against microbial contamination.

Orthopaedic Joint Replacement Components Packaging

We offer a range of standard & custom made extruded tube containers that are specially designed with superior structural rigidity and impact-resistant packaging materials. This offers greater product protection against contamination and damage such as tears and punctures.

Screws and Implants Packaging

Our range of stock standard & custom made packaging for medical screws and implants includes rigid PETG and PVC extruded container systems that are designed to protect the contents against damage and contamination during transportation, handling, and storage.

Medical Rigid Tubing for Packaging

Rigid extruded medical tubes are an affordable, durable, and reusable packaging solution. Our rigid medical tube packaging is made from sterilisable medical-grade thermoplastic, a packaging material that offers exceptional protection for delicate medical devices.

We can also make rigid plastic tubing according to your specifications.

High Performance Medical Grade Materials

The materials we use to manufacture our packaging offer superior structural strength and sealing while also providing an excellent microbial barrier to ensure integrity.

Our sealing process and sterile barrier systems help to maintain the sterile integrity of the contents until they are opened and ensure greater protection against tearing and puncturing while in transit and storage.

Our material selection includes:

PETG (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol)

PETG has a rigid structure that allows it to withstand harsh Ethylene Oxide and Gamma sterilisation methods. This makes it an excellent material for medical device packaging. We use only the best PETG for our moulded trays and blister packaging.

PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)

PVC is widely used for pharmaceutical packaging because it offers excellent structural rigidity, physical protection, thermoformability, strength, and chemical resistance.

It is also a low-cost packaging material and can be easily sterilised using radiation or ethylene oxide methods.

Cellulose Acetate

Cellulose Acetate is a popular material for medical packaging because it has high transparency, excellent mechanical strength, good resistance to chemicals, and superior heat sealing properties.

Medical Grade Paper

Made from medical Tyvek materials, our medical grade paper offers strength and acts as a durable, protective barrier for medical devices such as based tubes for catheters. Our medical paper also offers excellent microbial, tear, and puncture resistance.

Greater Package Integrity

Medical device packaging enhances the shelf life of products by maintaining the sterility of the contents. The longer healthcare packaging can maintain its integrity, the longer products remain sterile. All our designing and performance testing procedures are done with this in mind so we can provide our clients with sterile medical/pharmaceutical packaging that provides the highest level of protection and a clean peel.

Our plastic medical packaging will maintain its integrity throughout its shelf-life, even with coatings and in storage conditions that vary in temperature, air pressure, and humidity.

Tear Resistance

Made from high-grade materials, our packaging is more resistant to tearing and puncturing. This gives your product longer shelf life and prevents it from getting damaged before use.

Seal Strength

Our medical caps are designed to offer more seal strength and are for EO sterilisation. Superior sealing acts as a microbial barrier and ensures the packaging is safely sealed up until use.

Microbial Barrier

The durable materials we use adhere to medical packaging standards and offer a strong microbial barrier that protects the contents from contamination.

Sterilisation Methods

Plastech’s sterile medical device packaging has a sterile barrier system and is designed to withstand Gamma and Ethylene Oxide (EO) sterilisation methods. Our sterilization method using irradiation or gas, such as Gamma or Ethylene Oxide (EO), enables full penetration of the fully packed device without affecting the package integrity.
