Clariant Introduces Mevopur® For Medical Applications

Switzerland-based Clariant and its Masterbatches business have introduced a range of Mevopur® color and functional additives specifically for use in high-performance, spunbond fibers used in medical applications including gowns, masks, medical filtration products and wound care dressings, among other applications.

Clariant reports the Mevopur masterbatches and compounds come with regulatory documentation showing the biological evaluation of its raw materials to USP chapters (Class VI) and ISO10993 requirements to support their use in medical applications. The masterbatches are available in seven colors — yellow, orange, red, violet, dark blue, mid green and green.

“Our product line continues to expand and evolve, now meeting customer demand for change-controlled raw material ingredients that comply with stringent medical requirements, and helping manufacturers find new alternatives for creating more colorful, comfortable, and functional medical and hygienic products,” said Francis Baud, global fiber marketing head for the Clariant Masterbatches business unit.
