Elastomers - Pharmaceutical

James Walker's pharmaceutical grades of ethylene-propylene-diene, fluorocarbon and silicone elastomers have been independently tested and certified to United States Pharmacopeia (USP) Class VI. In addition, we offer two DuPont Kalrez grades with USP Class VI.

This stringent biological evaluation has been designed to ensure that products manufactured from the material will be non-toxic, and suitable for use in selected medical devices or in contact with injectable drugs.
