The two main application areas for medical approved PVC compounds are flexible containers and tubing. Examples are containers used for blood and blood components for urine or for colostomy products and tubing used for blood taking and blood giving sets, catheters, heart-lung bypass sets and haemodialysis sets. In Europe the consumption of PVC for medical devices is approximately 85.000 tons. This amount represents less than 1% of the total PVC demand.
