Allegro® M sealant addresses pharma/medical device ‘clean peel’ lidding issues

Nov. 7, 2006
Pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers looking to solve “clean peel” lidding issues can now benefit from Rollprint Packaging Products, Inc. proprietary Allegro® M sealant. The sealant can be extrusion coated onto various substrates including film, foil or even paper to create a cost effective way to a achieve a “clean peel.” The sealant seals to numerous rigid cup or tray structures including high-impact polystyrene (HIPS), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), amorphous polyethylene terephthalate (APET), polypropylene (PP) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE). Allegro® M seals at low temperatures and also offers a wide operating window. Further, it frequently offers improved peelability at lower-cost than competitive products. The sealant is ideal for more challenging applications, including those that might be tough-to-seal due to liquid contamination on the sealing surface. Typical applications include unit-of-use liquid medications, diagnostic cartridges, pre-filled syringes and medical devices. Allegro® M’s sealing properties help the lidding structures stand up to transport challenges, thereby minimizing the chance of compromise. Allegro® M’s “no residue” clean peel offers a positive visual aesthetic. Additionally, it has a good thermal and dimensional stability and it is also suitable for radiation sterilization.
