Earlier this year, Tekni-Plex announced a USD 15 million investment in the facility to support the growing needs of the Asia-Pacific pharmaceutical and medical device markets. The facility will produce products developed by Tekni-Plex’s Colorite, Natvar and Action Technology business units. The more than 140,000-square-foot (13,000-square-meter) facility is manufacturing Tekni-Plex’s Natvar, Colorite and Action Technology products. The facility features three Class 100K cleanrooms to accommodate medical-grade tubing and components production plus one Class 10K cleanroom that will produce Natvar’s pharma-grade tubing.

The facility is in the process of commercializing Natvar’s recently-announced silicone extrusion tubing for catheters, feeding tubes, drug delivery and peristaltic pump applications. Production for microextrusion tubing that targets a wide variety of demanding neurovascular interventional therapies and surgical applications is expected to be on stream early next year. The facility will also manufacture Colorite custom compounds for medical device applications, and Action Technology’s dip tubes used in a wide variety of food/beverage, pharmaceutical, personal care, industrial and household pump applications.
