They now comply with the prerequisites for application in the medical and pharmaceutical industries.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) divides the plastics used in the medical and pharmaceutical industries into six biocompatibility classes in the American Drugs and Medicines Register (USP). The most stringent of the six categories is the USP Class VI classification. It is the prerequisite for use of the materials in the medical and pharmaceutical industries.
