        Hygienic items

        There is a growing tendency to substitute conventional materials in medical items with highly efficient polymers, such as polypropylene and PVC. Growth in this trade is bolstered by requirements linked with an ageing population, in particular in developed economies.
        Plastics are utilized in various health care and hygienic items – e.g. products for personal hygiene (nappies, liners), surgical and hospital wear and sets, medical products and aids.
