an introduction

The Bormed™ Concept

With over 35 years of experience in the healthcare industry, Bormed™ is founded on the principles of service, commitment and conformance.
triangle describing commitment service and conformance
We offer specialised project support from start to finish, including a 1-2-1 expert consultant and unrivalled access to data, such as rheology and mould flow. Our modelling and simulation analyses can support our customers’ upscaling efforts. By providing global support and thorough market understanding, we help you answer any challenge.

We help you address sustainability challenges and work towards long term-success, with our grades remaining unchanged. While we are committed to the grades as they are, if they require changing, we will provide up to five years’ availability.


We conform and adapt to current and future regulatory requirements around the world (MDR and IVDR at present). This safeguards your investment and enables significant cost savings over a project’s lifetime, offering you independent pharmacopoeia and ISO10993 analysis reports, and extractable testing data.

Embrace Circularity

Bornewables™ & Borcycle™ C

Meet your sustainability targets with ISCC Plus-certified polyolefins produced from renewable or chemically recycled feedstocks. The Bornewables™ and Borcycle™ C offer the same material performance and regulatory compliance as virgin Bormed™ medical grades.

The Bornewables™

The Bornewables™ offers circular Bormed™ polyolefins with a reduced carbon footprint and are produced with renewable feedstock derived entirely from waste and residue streams.

Borcycle C

Borcycle™ C is the chemically recycled line of Bormed™ and renews plastic back to plastic, giving polyolefin-based, post-consumer waste another life.
