Transparent polyolefin-based flexible film for medical and pharmaceutical fluids
Tekni-Films and Colorite Europe have jointly developed a range of polyolefin-based compounds and a specific extrusion technology to produce cost-effective glass clear autoclavable flexible sheet film for medical applications such as IV and dialysis solution bags: Tekniflex® MED. Tekni-Plex Europe positions the film as superior in terms of appearance over current PP-based sheet film. The clarity is as good as high-end polyamides in the skin layer, making Tekniflex MED film cost-attractive.
Tekniflex MED is particularly suitable for the production of IV-bags, in combination with port tubes made of compatible compounds with the film.
