PremiumCoat: The alternative coated stopper for sensitive drugs

PremiumCoat is a novel range of elastomeric stoppers developed by Aptar Stelmi launched in 2015. Based on an approved, pure, state-of-the-art formulation, the surface of the elastomer is coated during manufacturing with an ETFE film.

This coating acts as an effective barrier to many of the extractables and leachables that can be released from the elastomer. As a result, compatibility of the drug and the closure is significantly superior with PremiumCoat stoppers.

The company's first design to be released in 2015 was a 20 mm coated stopper. It is widening the PremiumCoat range by introducing a 13 mm coated stopper, and will soon extend this offer with other products.

Joël Cotten, Business Development Director at Aptar Pharma, will give a presentation on 'PremiumCoat, The alternative coated stopper for sensitive drugs' during the Innopack Showcase, at 10 am, on 5 October 2016.
