PET Release Liners for Transdermal Patches
The Role of Medical Release Liners
NORFILM® release liners are a critical component in the overall development and performance of medical products such as transdermal drug delivery systems (TDDS), medical devices, advanced wound care dressings and other pharmaceutical packaging products.
Release Liners Used in Transdermal Patches
For the transdermal patches, release liners must be selected to provide consistent release performance and inertness in the end-use application. This is while meeting increasingly stringent performance and regulatory criteria in regard to quality, cleanliness, and purity. Careful evaluation and analysis is required to assure the proper release liner is selected for the drug or medical product under development.
Role of Release Liner in Skin Mounted Devices and Medical Applications
NORFILM® release liners provide several functions in medical device manufacturing and pharmaceutical applications. They are carriers that enable easier processing and handling of the patch but above all they act as the protective layer for the drug loaded adhesive. The liner is removed prior to the patient applying the patch to the body.
