Check all statements below that are applicable to your color additive containing component:

The clinical use environment does not cause the polymer matrix to swell or degrade.
Manufacturing processes do not impact the stability of the polymer.
The color additive is homogeneously distributed throughout the polymer.
The total amount of color additive is present in dilute concentrations (≤ 2 m/v %).
Color additive particles/aggregates present in the polymer are much smaller than the smallest component dimension (≤ 50x).
