- Environmental sustainable films: PVC-based or PVC-free
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.
Flexible high barrier films for liquids and solvents
Tekni-Films has developed a new series of flexible, transparent films (can be sterilised) suitable for a wide range of demanding form-fill-seal applications, pouches, thermoformable containers or even patch applications. PCTFE has proven to be an extreme barrier to solvents, preservatives, perfumes, etc. In addition, PCTFE resists attack from most chemicals such as acids, alkalis and many solvents.
