Film Solutions for Pharma Closures & Cap Liners
The Role of CHEMFILM Films in Drug Containers and Delivery Systems
Used as cap liners, stoppers and plunger laminates, CHEMFILM high performance films are used in the pharmaceutical industry in next generation drug containers and delivery systems.
They provide a barrier to minimize interaction between the drug and the closure therefore maintaining purity, shelf life, and minimizing risk of recalls. Our fluoropolymer films are inherently inert and will not contaminate the drug or sample in any way.
The Role of CHEMFILM Solutions in Pharma Closure Applications
For pharma closure applications, CHEMFILM high performance films are used because they are uniquely bondable to several sealing substrates such as butyl rubber and other elastomers. Our films conform to complex shapes therefore reducing the manufacturing defect rate. The excellent thermal stability and operating temperature range make them ideal for drug containers that must undergo lyophilization (freeze drying) and heat sterilization because stoppers will not stick.
Use of Fluoropolymer Films in Cap Liners
In cap liner applications, our films act as high-performance barrier preventing contents from coming in contact with or sticking to the sealing device. Chemically inert and thermoformable to shapes, the film is used for effective sealing off containers, eliminating the possibility for contamination and prevents any amount of leaching.
