Victrex Polymer Solutions (West Conshohocken, PA) offers labeling solutions for critical medical instruments based on APTIV® films made from VICTREX® PEEK polymer. The film labels retain their properties after multiple cycles of steam and chemical sterilization and are able to tolerate high doses of radiation, including gamma radiation. The labels provide various options like a QR code that allows a scanned code to be applied on a piece of equipment that links to webpages or computer programs leading to easily traceable information on the instruments. This labeling system also offers the option of retrospectively labeling older equipment. The films are available in sheet thicknesses of 6 microns to 750 microns. APTIV films are FDA compliant, have minimal moisture absorption, are electrically non-conductive, and are resistant to aggressive chemicals such as those used in ethylene oxide sterilization.
