According to the September 1999 Modern Plastics ("Heat-resistant, flexible
olefins meet tough medical demands") that states:

"Recent advances in single-site metallocene catalysts have created
novel olefin compositions and properties that yield cost/performance
similar to that of flexible PVC. Many of these materials are not
sterilizable, but still offer comatiblity with lipohphilic drug intravenous
solutions, better gas barrier properites,a nd the ability to meet
environmental reqauirements in various countries."
