Ethylene Oxide is exceptionally effective as a sterilant and is one of the leading methods used by the healthcare industry for the sterilization of medical devices. It is used to sterilize a wide range of medical devices because of its versatility and effectiveness in treating a wide variety of materials of construction including metals, plastics, elastomers, without negatively impacting the performance of the device.
Ethylene Oxide is capable of sterilizing at low temperatures, enabling the sterilization of many plastic, composite, and other temperature-sensitive devices. Additionally, it penetrates packaging materials and diffuses into the channels and crevices of complicated medical devices, including entire palletized loads of devices, destroying pathogens and assuring sterility of the product. Ethylene Oxide is also utilized to sterilize, fumigate, and reduce microbial load for a variety of other products including spices and seasonings, cosmetics, aseptic packaging, laboratory materials, pharmaceuticals, artifacts, archival materials, and library objects.
