Medical grade RP materials.

Hello List,

We are working on a small hand held Endoscope Handle and planning on overmolding 20 RP plugs that will have built in internal scope and fluid channels. The overall size of the plug is 1" x 1.75" x 3.5" with a .30" diameter tube extending out 2.25". Dimensions are not tight tolerances and the overmold material will probable be polypropylene or low density polyethylene.

I need a RP process that will be cost effective for this quantity and a material that will be able to withstand the overmolding, Steris chemical and ETO gas sterilization.

Thank you in advance for your help.
