In a challenging and constantly changing environment regarding regulatory, technical, and sustainable requirements, we needed a competent partner supporting us with plastics expertise. The appropriate partner for us must provide knowledge in this wide range of plastics-related topics.

Gradical supported medmix in material evaluations, including plastic resins, compounds, masterbatches, and additives, for life cycle cases as well as new device developments. Various projects and different scopes were executed by Gradical with focus on medical grade materials and sustainable material solutions. In addition, they also managed material compliance processes and corresponding statements.

Due to their experience in plastics, regulatory and global supply chains, Gradical was able to adapt to our specific needs and supported us to our complete satisfaction.
