Sterilization of Coroplast®

Sterilization of Coroplast®

When used in archival, pharmaceutical and hospital applications it is often necessary to have the Coroplast® act as a carrier through a sterilization system.

  1. Coroplast® may be wiped down with alcohol with no effect on the material.
  2. Their are many types of autoclaves on the market. Coroplast is being autoclaved (in excess of 3 years) in many situations. There are some extreme settings which will be damaging and we suggest a trial to determine performance in your equipment.
  3. Ethylene oxide gas sterilization has no effect of an kind on Coroplast and may be repeated any number of times.
  4. One of the most damaging forms of sterilization is by the use of gamma radiation. A single treatment is not critical; however 4-5 exposures to the Standard AECL-2.5 mega rad dose will be sufficient to make the polymer brittle and initiate breakdown.
