Developers at Gerresheimer believe in making good products better, and are presenting an improved Duma Twist-Off container called Duma Twist-Off Advanced for solid pharmaceuticals.

The improvements extend from more uniform wall thickness, through optimised closure design to compatibility with all other high-quality Duma Twist-Off and Duma OneLiner closures.

Gerresheimer Plastic Packaging global senior vice-president Niels Düring said: "As a result of our longstanding collaboration with our customers, we have been able to integrate their suggestions and requirements for sustainable increased barrier in our containers.

"We continuously optimise our products, even the proven pharmaceutical packaging products, so that we can deliver added value to our customers and patients."

Duma Twist-Off Advanced containers are more stable than their predecessors because the thinner areas have been eliminated and they have a more uniform wall thickness distribution.

Their permeation has also been further reduced and their barrier properties improved.

The new design is compatible with all other high-quality Duma Twist-Off closures, including the Duma OneLiner.

Duma Twist-Off Advanced also has a full set of documentation for product registration. The containers with closures are available in sizes of 15ml, 35ml, 75ml, 100ml and 150 ml.

The Gerresheimer Duma, Dudek and Triveni branded products include a broad range of containers in HDPE and closures in LDPE and PP for the pharmaceutical market.

A wide range of solid dosage, closure and security systems makes the product fully adaptable to individual requirements of the customer. It includes containers with screw caps, snap closures, child-safe and senior-friendly closures.
