Borealis offers the medical industry a new high transparency, high purity sealing film solution

Borealis A/S : 04 July, 2006  (New Product)
Borealis is enlarging its product offer for high quality films with a new addition to its Bormed family of dedicated healthcare polyolefins. The new grade, Bormed TD109CF, is a polypropylene sealing material that combines processing advantages with high transparency, purity, excellent sealing behaviour and sterilisability. End uses which can benefit from the performance advantages include pouches, form- fill-seal film, the sealable layer for lids for the packaging of medical devices, and lid films for blister packaging. With this new grade, Borealis' range of solutions for the medical film industry becomes uniquely broad.
Borealis is enlarging its product offer for high quality films with a new addition to its Bormed family of dedicated healthcare polyolefins. The new grade, Bormed TD109CF, is a polypropylene sealing material that combines processing advantages with high transparency, purity, excellent sealing behaviour and sterilisability. End uses which can benefit from the performance advantages include pouches, form- fill-seal film, the sealable layer for lids for the packaging of medical devices, and lid films for blister packaging. With this new grade, Borealis' range of solutions for the medical film industry becomes uniquely broad.

Bormed TD109CF fulfils the need of the medical industry for pure polymers due to its low solubles and extractables. In coextruded films, Bormed TD109CF's typical broad sealing window of approximately 35C allows converters to seal different films on the packaging line, without the need to adjust sealing parameters, thereby improving the speed of production. Its low sealing initiation temperatures in the range of 103C to 105C deliver reduced cycle times, leading to an increase in line speed and the potential for increased production volumes. This new grade can be processed by cast-, tubular quench-, and blown film technologies.

Peter Nieders, Product Development Engineer for Borealis' film business, comments: 'Until now, for converters to achieve sealing films with excellent sealing behaviour, high clarity, high purity and sterilisability, key attributes for film sealants in the medical industry - they had to look towards highly expensive compounds. With Bormed TD109CF delivering similar behaviour at a lower cost, the industry can benefit without compromising on the performance of the end-product.'

In addition to these unique characteristics, Bormed TD109CF displays the key advantages of Borealis' Bormed range developed to satisfy the demand from the pharmaceutical industry for consistency of quality and appropriateness for healthcare applications:

Broad spectrum of healthcare properties: including transparency, chemical inertness, sterilisability at 121C and environmental stress cracking resistance

Contamination-free quality: strict, controlled processing conditions ensure contamination-free quality

Guaranteed supply: continuity of long-term supply is assured globally
