Medical grade inks used to mark medical devices should meet important safety standards. The United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) 30, NF 25, 2007 standard also known as Class VI is widely used to comply with stringent FDA rules for products that come in contact with the human body.
Many medical devices are made from medical grade plastics that typically have low surface energy. It is often necessary to modify the surface energy in order to guarantee the adhesion of any permanent markings as well as to improve device performance. By altering the surface properties, critical markings on devices such as catheters adhere better and they can slide and maneuver more easily within the body.
Syringes, catheters, medical tubing – most of the time these medical devices are imprinted with markings that facilitate their use. Because they come in contact with the human body, both the substrate itself and the ink used to mark it are subject to standards issued by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP).
