ROLLING PRAIRIE, Ind.  – OTECH Corporation has announced a strong commitment to earn a spot as “Your New Choice” in the medical market.

“OTECH is committed to offering medical customers a new compound choice in several applications,” says Jack O’Donnell, President and CEO. “We seek to partner with our customers to eliminate any concerns they might have about switching to or adding OTECH as a supplier because of the regulatory environment in medical.”

OTECH’s medical-grade PVC compounds are the emerging choice in the regulated market for formulations engineered for clear tubing, injection-molded parts and film applications. All of OTECH’s medical-grade compounds are designed and produced for superior clarity, thermal stability and processability in its state-of-the-art segregated medical-grade compounding facility.

“OTECH manufactures many clear and regulated compounds, and have for many years, so we have an abundance of experience. Our PF2000 series of products for medical applications were a natural progression of that experience. We listened to medical customers that wanted fully automated compounding, precise lot-to-lot traceability, phthalate free plasticizers and state-of-the-art diagnostics,” says O’Donnell. “We made it official a few years ago with approvals from NSF, USP and others. With these differentiators from our competitors, we are an extremely viable new choice for medical processors.”

Through newly engineered plant automation, OTECH delivers superior lot-to-lot traceability and consistency, and product purity through raw material and finished goods isolation in a fully controlled environment. It offers a full array of EO, Gamma-stable compounds for extrusion and injection molding applications. OTECH’s products are designed with a one-size-fits-all approach through cross certifications for compliance to USP Class VI, FDA 21CFR10, CA Prop 65, REACH/RoHS, NSF 51 and 61, and UL. All OTECH products are DEHP- and phthalate-free.

OTECH Corporation, founded by O’Donnell in 1999, is a leader in thermoplastic compounding and one of the largest vinyl compounders in the Midwest. It develops, designs and custom manufactures high-quality specialty PVC compounds, thermoplastic elastomers and alloys used in electrical wire and cable, footwear, housewares, roofing, agricultural parts, automotive and now medical industries. It boasts more than 100 UL- approved products including highly specialized flame-retardant compounds, low- temperature compounds and thermoplastic elastomer compounds.

All of OTECH’s products are manufactured in its 250,000-square-foot facility in Rolling Prairie, Indiana.
