A new standard created by successfully eliminating the use of metal
PLASCAP® is a plastic vial cap with a pre-assembled, customized rubber stopper. This translucent solution can be applied for vial containment and for pre-fillable container systems. PLASCAP technology allows one step capping after filling. It is integrated next-generation closure/stopper system for vials, replacing aluminum seals.
PLASCAP® was born from the difficult challenge of eliminating all metals from medical product packaging. Instead of using aluminum caps, which may generate powder during the manufacturing process, PLASCAP®is made of a unique plastic material that can be disposed of by incineration. Furthermore, by combining the cap with a rubber stopper, we have made it possible to perform the filling and seaming processes in one step.
A proprietary pre-assembled plastic cap with a rubber stopper allows one step vial capping, meeting latest regulatory and customer needs making aluminum seals redundant.
No metal used
PLASCAP® is metal-free, making it easy to bring into clean rooms and prevent the generation of metallic foreign matter, a step that is critical in the filling process. PLASCAP® is also designed to be environmentally friendly, as it can be disposed of through incineration. The product is made of a translucent plastic material making it easy to detect foreign matter in the rubber or vial during and after filling.
No crimping required
PLASCAP® eliminates the need for separate processes of filling and crimping the aluminum cap. This improves the efficiency of the manufacturing process. Also, with the introduction of a dedicated filling and sealing machine, it is possible to seal the entire nest at once. If a manual stopper is used, small-lot production of cell and gene therapies products, etc., can also be handled.
Our value proposition provides to our customers custom designed, inhouse manufactured fluoropolymer laminated stoppers embedded in a Polypropylene (PP). This combined product from one hand combines decades of our expertise in field of vial containment. In result customers receives a solution that has been tested for container integrity with ISO Glass Vials or our proprietary CZ Vials.
