TPE Compounds for a Healthy Life
TPEs for consumer goods applications and pharmaceutical closures are the focus at Actega DS GmbH, Bremen, Germany. The Soft Est portfolio comprising 21 materials offers both highly transparent as well as translucent and natural-colored versions with Shore hardness values ranging from A-20 to A-85. These are all food-safe in compliance with EU Regulation No. 10/2011 and FDA Regulations. The products are suitable for applications involving contact with aqueous, acid, alcoholic, dry, and fatty foods. However, care must be taken here to ensure the correct ratio of contact surface to total surface.
Provamed 6145 TL, 6245 NC, and 6345 NC are a transparent and two natural-colored TPE compounds for pharmaceutical closures, which meet performance and conformity specifications according to US Pharmacopeia (USP) 381, as well as sterilizability requirements by all current methods. With very low migration potential and no polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or plasticizer content, these TPEs are suitable for the production of stoppers and closures by injection molding. According to Actega, even after repeated puncturing, the closure reseals immediately and completely to avoid leakage and contamination of the active ingredient.
